Fueling Miss Vermont
Miss Vermont travels across the state each year speaking about her platform and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, working with civic and community groups, and doing charitable work. Miss Vermont 2017 made over 60 appearances in her first quarter, speaking to Vermont children about pursuing careers in STEM.
As an official Fueling Miss Vermont Sponsor, your organization sponsors a month of driving for our titleholders by providing Miss Vermont with a $200 gas card and Miss Vermont’s Outstanding Teen with a $150 gas card. During the month of your sponsorship, Miss Vermont will put your sponsorship on every travel-related social media post she makes. Schedule permitting, she will also prioritize an appearance at an event at your business during your month.
Sponsoring one month or more month will give your business:
- Public exposure in different parts of the state every week and exposure to private organizations, civic organizations, families, schools, and at heavily attended Vermont tourism events.
- Messages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and in print identifying your organization as #FuelingMissVT for the month.
- The ability to have the titleholders attend a special event for your organization that month.
- 1 ticket to the Miss Vermont Competition for the coming year.
- A 1/4 page ad in our program book for competition.
