The American250 DEIC is an event where student teams from Pennsylvania colleges and universities compete to design and launch the integrated marketing campaign strategy for the America250PA initiative. The three-round competition will end with the final DEIC competition being held live on stage at the Wilkes-Barre Connect Conference, on November 19th.

These students will travel to Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA on October 24th to compete. The campus round was held on October 3rd, where this team was chosen out of the five competing teams.

These students will compete against other college teams at the next level to design, develop, and pitch a concept that will highlight an integrated marketing strategy for the America250 PA campaign.
