SCC FFL Sports Marketing Competition – Individual Awards

Another amazing effort from all of our schools in SCC’s sports marketing fantasy football league this season. Overall, our participating schools (25 different schools representing 15 different states) showed a lot of creativity while demonstrating a great understanding of the sports business principles that provide the foundation of our curriculum programs. It is always rewarding to see how well students can apply some of the fundamental lessons to a project like this…

Congrats again to Carolyn Province’s class at Grapevine High School for winning our third annual competition. However, we would also like to recognize a few other classes for a job well done with some individual awards this season…
