Here is the Social Studies Regions Project Description:
  • Your group has been selected to increase tourism to a specific region of the United States. Considering difficult financial times, gear your marketing to average Americans looking for a good value.
  • By working together as a team, you’ll create a final PowerPoint presentation, which will attract tourists to your assigned region. Your team will have two managers, two copywriters, two researchers, and two graphic designers.
  • Every successful advertising/marketing company needs a catchy name and attractive logo. Your group will create a company name and logo for itself.
  • As in every company, there will be meetings with members of your team to discuss ideas, resolve problems, and create the final presentation.
