On or by March 31, six finalist teams will be selected and invited to participate in Media Scholars Week in Washington, DC. Should safety protocols allow, finalists will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to DC, where they will present their Media Plans to a panel of judges. In the event that final presentations and seminars are unable to take place in-person, we will transition to a virtual experience. In either scenario, finalists will take part in networking with media companies and participate in a variety of career prep/professional development sessions with national experts and leaders during the week of June 4 if in person, with additional virtual sessions taking place in late May as well. The judging and final presentations will take place on June 8, 2023, as will the awards presentation.
