Google Online Marketing Challenge - GOMC 2012 - Student and Professor Registration Important Dates

The Google Online Marketing Challenge (GOMC)

About: The Google Online Marketing Challenge (GOMC) is an exciting opportunity for students to experience online marketing and creating online marketing campaigns using Google AdWords. As well, students and their professors can win great prizes. Over 50,000 students from almost 100 countries have participated in past Challenges.

With a US$250 budget provided by Google, students develop an online advertising strategy for a real business or non-profit organization that has not used AdWords in the last six months. The global winners and their professor receive a trip to the Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California to meet with the AdWords team. Regional winners and their professor receive a trip to a regional Google office.

The competition is open to enrolled undergraduate or graduate students, regardless of major, with teams ranging in size from three to six. All students must register under a verified professor/instructor at a higher education institution.
