Pizza Hut is offering one college sports fan the opportunity to travel to as many Division I NCAA championships as possible for $50,000.
Pizza Hut offer $50,000 to one passionate sports fan to travel to as many Division I NCAA championships as possible, sharing their journey with millions of sports fans everywhere.
“This is one of those rare once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to experience something that no one has done before,” said David Daniels, Vice President, Media & Advertising, Pizza Hut. “We know that college sports fans are as passionate about their teams as we are about pizza, and as the Official Pizza of the NCAA, we felt it was our obligation to bring exclusive Pizza Hut experiences to Division I NCAA championships, especially those that often don’t get the limelight. We cannot wait to send our first-ever Pizza Hut All-American to bring incredible Pizza Hut experiences to these events and celebrate the great fandom that exists across all college sports.”
To help kick off the search for the first-ever Pizza Hut All-American, Pizza Hut has enlisted the help of Shane Battier, a star professional basketball player and member of the 2001 Duke University NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship-winning team.
“The Pizza Hut All-American opportunity is an incredibly exciting opportunity,” said Battier. “To have a chance to be part of all of these championships is pretty special. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of candidates are out there.”
The ideal Pizza Hut All-American talent will demonstrate passion for all NCAA sports and will be outgoing, enthusiastic and eager to share their All-American journey with fans online. The right talent will also be social media savvy, with a proven track record of creating great content. Pizza Hut will narrow the list of talent to three and put them through the paces of what an activation might be like. Pizza Hut will also enable its social communities to partake in the interview processes with some portions being live streamed and allowing fans to submit interview questions.
