In addition to your family and friends celebrating this outstanding academic achievement with you, often your hometown newspaper or church newsletter will recognize such an accomplishment.
Below for your use is a “Media Release Form” to send to these outlets. The following are some instructions on how to use this tool most effectively.
Media Release Form Instructions:
- Identify each publication that may be interested in publishing the news of your achievement. You may want to personally contact each publication to confirm their interest and, for larger publications, to determine an appropriate contact person (for example, larger daily papers may have an education editor).
- Duplicate the form – one form for each publication.
- Complete the form adding your personal details and achievements. (A sample form is enclosed suggesting possible details.) Also, some hometown newspapers will print a photograph of the student if provided.
- Mail, fax or personally deliver all forms to each publication. (Do not return to Belmont University.)
Please take full advantage of this opportunity to showcase your achievement. Best wishes on your continued success.
