I received this recently from the folks responsible for putting together the 2010 Rockie Awards:
Idaho Ad Peeps,
In the year 2010, a noble few are called upon to lead worthy advertising mortals to the Valhallas of Valhallas—an Idaho Advertising Federation Rockie Award.
So here’s the deal. Rather than having a few hired guns to host the IAF Rockie Awards, we’re turning to the community to take part in honoring itself. That’s kind of narcissistic and yet, cool.
We need hosts to announce the winners in the various categories. We’re looking for 30 people to be put into pairs of two. Each twosome will hand out the awards for 1 of the 15 different categories.
You can volunteer as a team or the Rockies crew can pair you up with another solo award giver-outer.
Your twosome can write your own witty repartee or you will be provided a script for your introduction with ample room for witty ad libs. The Rockies crew will need to approve submitted scripts for timing and content.
Please feel free to pass this on to others in your shops that you think may be interested as well. It’s open to anyone brave enough to take the stage and their 10-15 minutes of fame.
If you’re interested in being involved in the show and willing to pair up with someone to host a category or have further questions before you’d like to commit please E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
