Recently Leigh Choate, the teacher for the “Principles of Marketing” class at Livingston Central High School asked Green Turtle Bay Resort to judge her classes semester marketing project. The project was to create a marketing campaign for an established business and the students used Green Turtle Bay Resort as the business.
Green Turtle Bay received the projects last month, and they were so impressed with the creativity of the students that they invited the class as a whole to come to resort to film the commercial that the students developed as part of the marketing plan.
This project was so successful so that in the future Green Turtle Bay is planning to make this an annual contest. Plans include inviting all local schools to submit a commercial and the winner will come to the resort to film it. My hope is that the plan will inspire a passion for the travel industry in some students, and that they will become tomorrows Destination Marketing Executives.
The commercial for this years project aired on WPSD-TV Local 6 during the Kentucky Derby. This is the student’s commercial:
