2020 Stukent Social Media Marketing Challenge Winners

Over 400  Business Professionals of America (BPA) students competed in the Stukent Social Media Marketing Challenge this year! As part of the challenge, students competed using the social media marketing simulation Mimic Social. They were tasked with managing a fictitious bag company’s $5,000 weekly social media ad budget. Ad dollars were put toward marketing on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Pinterest, which gave students hands-on work experience in the social media marketing industry.

The three, top-performing students were awarded cash prizes and recognized (virtually) by BPA and Stukent.

Top institutions around the world are using Mimic Social—students learn to excel at social media marketing as they discover how to drive conversions and increase engagement using critical thinking and A/B testing. 

Mimic Social

Mimic Social also teaches audience targeting and how to promote and schedule content. Students learn how to increase the effectiveness of their marketing strategies and content creation through data-driven decisions and mastering key performance indicators.

The 3 winners developed these skills and abilities and proved themselves against their peers.

Congratulations on your achievement!

Here’s what some of them had to say about the challenge …

“When I saw the challenge offered this year, I was excited to try it out with my BPA students enrolled in my Business Management & Leadership course.  This was such a welcome opportunity in a year where we are not experiencing the opportunity to compete in person. Overall, we had a great experience with this challenge!”

“I was always super excited after each posting round to see how my posts did and what worked well as far as making revenue. I dedicated time in class to do it and at home, because I was wanting to place in the top three. I figured if I spent more time on it, then I would get the results I was hoping for!”
