Shamar Thompson, Malik Sembene, Wagawatta Perera (from left to right) of McKee High School participated in the Ad Futures competition sponsored by the Ad Club of New York (@adclubny) on Thursday, 9.28.17. The mentors were SS+K (@SSandK).
The purpose of the competition was to create marketing for the Ad Council focusing on underage drinking and driving. The three students had 3 weeks of preparation, right at the start of the school year, along with mentors, and were able to step onto the stage in front of 240 people in the audience.
The experience was enlightening and gave each young man just a taste of what a career in advertising might be like. The go-getter McKee teacher responsible for jump starting an opportunity for a Virtual Enterprise experience was Mr. Isai Serrano.
