That creative will involve production of a :30 TV spot; a variety of radio commercials; print ads and predominantly banner ads for distribution on Facebook and Google Adwords. All digital assets will be measured using a variety of analytics through Facebook and Google Analytics. The intern chosen will be provided a copy of the VTC grant.
