At the Nullify Student Meeting and UNO All Career Fair. I told all students about a chance to win a free ticket to a upcoming conference Connectaha that Farm Credit Services of America was sponsoring. Anyone who submitted info with the Office 365 Form I would put in a drawing.
The email looked like this:
About 10 students took the time to reply. Three students were chosen almost at random. The day before the conference I purchased three tickets for three UNO students. I waited a longer just incase one had to cancel. I had worked out a deal with ConnectHa to get students in for a discounted price. All together $295.86 total.
The three UNO students were all students I had multiple contact points with.
The morning of the conference, I showed up Connectaha to get a picture by the FCSAmerica booth with them. Connectaha has agreed to send a social thank you to Farm Credit Services of America for sponsoring UNO students. I believe it is more meaningful when it’s originated by the organization hosting the event FCSAmerica is sponsoring as opposed to self-promotion.
I heard from the afternoon group booth Srishty and Kim both stopped by the booth and were a pleasure to talk too. This sponsorship for students is a great way to build relationships with relationships with the University of Nebraska-Omaha and the student population.
