Now here’s a cool event, created for high school students who can’t get enough of txt messaging… the Cingular and West Orange High School TXT Bee Event.
Here’s the skinny from Cingular… The Cingular TXT Bee is an innovative event that is designed to bridge the communication gap that sometimes exists between parents and teens through text messaging. It is a first-of-its-kind grassroots effort that utilizes the spirit of competition to encourage parents to start communicating in the “language” that has become so popular with teens. Five parent/student teams from West Orange High School, to be randomly selected the night of the event, will compete in two rounds of competition in a game show style format with the second round determining the winner. Essentially it is the Newlywed Game meets Family Feud — with text messaging as the way to submit answers. The winning parent/student team will win a $5,000 scholarship. Cingular is also donating $5,000 to West Orange High School Project Graduation. WHEN & WHERE: Friday evening, January 19, 2007 at 8:30pm, West Orange High School, 51 Conforti Avenue, West Orange, New Jersey 07052. I’d be curious to see what kind of devices they will be using for the event.. perhaps the new BlackJack or ?? Related Web site: http://www.cingular.com/
