Communication Week 3x3x3 showcase, film festival & Wackiest Word winners announced
On Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020, UW-Green Bay Communication students participated in the 3x3x3 showcase and film festival with a chance to win scholarship money. The events, as well as a banquet afterwards, concluded Communication Week 2020.
The “Competitive Spark Endowment,” funded by Dental City, provided $2,000 in awards to be divided among the winners of Comm Week events. Dental City is a Green Bay-based distributor of dental supplies, with deep connections to the University, including many UW-Green Bay alumni employees. Through Competitive Spark, Dental City aims to turn the traditional merit-based award process upside down by rewarding performance in structured competitions including Comm Week, Business Week and Innovation in Aging.
Congratulations to the winners of the 3x3x3 showcase: Lindsay Fanning, Meg Lehman, Rebecca Schwerman, Alison Denecke and Marissa Lung for their presentation on a social media court case analysis, originally presented in Communication Law in fall 2019. The first place winner for the film festival is Jenna Bares, who submitted a women’s basketball travel vlog. Below are the second and third place winners:
2nd place: Megan Coenen, Mariah Lorfeld, Emily Gerlikovski and Jan-Marie Matthysse; Implementing a Change in a Paper Production Plant
3rd place: Jada Davis and Mikay Martens; Green Bay Booyah
2nd place: Kyle Malzhan; Troy Black Baseball News Package
3rd Place: Mckenzie Rasmussen; UWGB Housing Crisis News Package
The 2020 Wisconsin Wackiest Word Winner was also announced at the banquet as “brewski,” which simply signifies the way Wisconsinites sometimes refer to beer.
