2014 Super Bowl promotion liftoff with kids participation in new video
Hoboken Events Committee to produce community testimonial video as part of their
ongoing effort to promote the city as a prime 2014 Super Bowl events venue.
The Hoboken Events Committee—in cooperation with the City of Hoboken, the
Hoboken Board of Education and the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce—is
proud to announce the launch of an initiative aimed at generating support and
awareness for the city, its residents and its businesses in the wake of the devastating
flooding brought on by Hurricane Sandy.
With the help of the greater community, Scott Katz—Emmy Award-winning
director and Hoboken Events Committee Chairman—will produce a video for the
City that promotes local attractions while highlighting the unique qualities that
make Hoboken so remarkable. The intent of the video is to not only illustrate the
city’s resilience, but also to reinforce Hoboken’s standing as a unique location for
functions involving the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl—an event which is sure to bring
a substantial amount of tourism and commercial revenue to our area and ultimately
help local businesses with their long-term recovery.
“What I Love About Hoboken”
The video will be a compilation of words and drawings submitted by children from
Hoboken. Any children interested in participating are asked to submit an essay or
piece of artwork that would fit the theme: “What I Love About Hoboken”. It can be
one paragraph, a few sentences or even a drawing.
Participating children must be enrolled in a Hoboken school—private, public or
charter. Winning entries will be chosen by a group of panelists. Children whose
work is selected will be asked to read their essay or explain their picture on camera
so that the recordings can then be compiled into one video, with multiple children of
all ages telling the world what there is to love about Hoboken.
The deadline for submissions is Sunday February 3, 2013.
