The MEAC/SWAC Challenge presented by Disney is an ESPN owned and operated game, held annually in Orlando. Noel developed the budget, and negotiated and executed the media buys (radio, broadcast and cable television, billboards and print). She also coordinated the efforts of the street team, government relations and community outreach.
The audience attendance grew steadily over the 4 years when we worked on the game. The 2013 campaign brought close to 25,000 fans to the Citrus Bowl, up from the 8,000+ attendees at the game in 2008 (the year prior to our work with the MEAC/SWAC Challenge).
Honorable Mention - Platinum PR Awards
Received Honorable Mention as a Finalist in the 2013 PR News' Platinum PR Awards, an international peer-reviewed industry award for Crisis Management. The category was ultimately won by the LiveStrong Foundation for its handling of the founder's announcement that he used banned steroids during his cycling career.
It was a significant accomplishment for our firm to be named alongside the other category finalists: all organizations with teams and budgets much larger than ours.
