2014 Super Bowl promotion liftoff with kids participation in new video


Hoboken Events Committee to produce community testimonial video as part of their ongoing effort to promote the city as a prime 2014 Super Bowl events venue.

The Hoboken Events Committee—in cooperation with the City of Hoboken, the Hoboken Board of Education and the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce—is proud to announce the launch of an initiative aimed at generating support and awareness for the city, its residents and its businesses in the wake of the devastating flooding brought on by Hurricane Sandy.

With the help of the greater community, Scott KatzEmmy Award-winning director and Hoboken Events Committee Chairman—will produce a video for the City that promotes local attractions while highlighting the unique qualities that make Hoboken so remarkable. The intent of the video is to not only illustrate the city’s resilience, but also to reinforce Hoboken’s standing as a unique location for functions involving the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl—an event which is sure to bring a substantial amount of tourism and commercial revenue to our area and ultimately help local businesses with their long-term recovery.

“What I Love About Hoboken”
The video will be a compilation of words and drawings submitted by children from Hoboken. Any children interested in participating are asked to submit an essay or piece of artwork that would fit the theme: “What I Love About Hoboken”. It can be one paragraph, a few sentences or even a drawing.

Participating children must be enrolled in a Hoboken school—private, public or charter. Winning entries will be chosen by a group of panelists. Children whose work is selected will be asked to read their essay or explain their picture on camera so that the recordings can then be compiled into one video, with multiple children of all ages telling the world what there is to love about Hoboken.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday February 3, 2013.
