Our competition finalists have been hard at work putting the finishing touches on their media plans and presentations. This is the third and final round of national competition! Take some time to learn more about this year’s finalists on our “Meet the Finalists” page.
The mission of WMSF is to engage with college students interested in strategic media by creating scholarship, educational and career advancement opportunities. The Media Scholars Case Competition is an annual event that allows students to apply their media skills, adapt to challenges and learn about new topics while competing for the National Excellence in Media Award. This award, a runners-up award, and the Mia Guion Scholarship total $18,500 in scholarships to be distributed. To donate and help sponsor the mission of WMSF, visit our “Donate” page.
In light of the fast approaching Media Scholars Week, we want to thank our current sponsors for making the mission of WMSF possible. The 2021 Media Scholars Presenting Sponsor, Katz Media Group, is joined by three Premier Sponsors of the program: Gray TV, TEGNA/Premion, and Resonate. Because of our many sponsors, WMSF is able to provide an outstanding experience to the Media Scholars Finalists.
