Have we got an opportunity for you!
Fall is in full swing; leaves are starting to fall, and the air is getting a little crisper as college sports are starting to heat up. Smell that? It smells of victory and pizza! To help bring the excitement to D1 championships, we’re asking for one industrious and creative super fan to visit NCAA championships over the course of the 2016-17 season on behalf of Pizza Hut. This lucky individual will travel the country bringing the pizza and the energy to pizza loving sports fans all over this great nation.
Pizza Hut All-American Position Description (ENTRY PERIOD HAS ENDED)
Every year, the NCAA crowns 90 National Champions. That’s a whopping 90 times a team has bested everyone else – through mud and sweat, bruises and tears.
And for some crazy reason, every year, we (mostly) hear about just a handful of those 90 wins. Sure, March Madness, the College Football Championship, the Frozen Four, the College World Series…those are all GREAT.
But what about golf? And bowling? Or skiing? Field hockey? Gymnastics? Fans of those sports are just as passionate as those who love football and basketball. They’re painting their faces, and braving the cold, and blowing out their voices in the stands all the same. That’s why Pizza Hut, as the Official Pizza Partner of the NCAA, is going to give one passionate sports fan the opportunity of a lifetime: The chance to celebrate NCAA Division 1 championships as the “Pizza Hut All-American.”
In short, we’re looking for the ultimate college sports fan.
The Pizza Hut All-American will have unparalleled access to all NCAA championships for the 2016-17 season. As he/she travel from city-to-city and championship-to-championship, the All-American will be responsible for sharing their journey and showcasing how Pizza Hut is fueling fandom and celebrating NCAA championships.
Who is the Pizza Hut All-American?
The ideal All-American will be as passionate about college sports as we are about making great pizza. We want to see true, unbridled fandom for NCAA athletics, from basketball and football to bowling and archery and beyond. Gymnastics, too? You bet your balance beam.
The right talent will be outgoing, enthusiastic and eager to share his/her journey with fans. He/she have a proven track record of creating great content, with a detailed understanding of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. The All-American should be ready to roll at all times and able to professionally handle everything from a live media interview to a Facebook Live broadcast. The ideal All-American will think outside the [pizza] box and bring big ideas for how best to celebrate each championship with fans!
The All-American will be on the road. A lot. So, he/she should be prepared for adventure, but also prepared to face any challenge – from flight delays and rain delays, to finding a dry cleaner that can get grass stains out of a mascot costume.
