August 22, 2018  • Arica Van Boxtel

The Aspen Institute is looking for social media ambassadors to participate in the Project Play Summit in Washington, DC, on October 16, 2018.

The 2018 Project Play Summit is the nation’s premier gathering of leaders at the intersection of youth, sport, and health. With a “Think Global, Play Local” theme and a keynote address by NBA legend Kobe Bryant, the Project Play Summit will bring together domestic and global trailblazers who can help US leaders identify opportunities for innovation. Participants will explore how to give all kids in the US access to quality sport activity regardless of zip code or ability, hear from more than 40 industry leaders and innovators, and be at the forefront of major new announcements.

As a social media ambassador, you will share opinions and observations from the Project Play Summit with your social media audience using the hashtag #ProjectPlay. Additionally, you will receive free entrance and priority seating.

Being a social media ambassador is a great opportunity to share the key messages of the day with a larger audience and to move forward the conversation on building healthy, active communities through sport. The ideal ambassador will:

  • Have a large following on one or multiple social media platforms
  • Possess a strong passion for building healthy, active communities
  • Demonstrate a keen eye for creative digital storytelling

In the application, please specify if you would like to cover the event from your organization’s social media accounts. Please note, transportation and lodging are not provided by the Aspen Institute.
