2019 Texas Tribune Festival Social Media Ambassadors

New Politics Forum

In collaboration with the Texas Tribune, the New Politics Forum is excited to offer students a unique opportunity to serve as social media ambassadors at the upcoming Festival in Austin, Texas.

Through the social media ambassador program, select students will have unique access to conversations and civic leaders guiding our state's and our nation's next steps, including more than 300 leading figures in politics and public policy. Students will serve as on-the-ground correspondents, detailing the sights and sounds of all things Festival on their social media platforms. Students will capture exciting moments, engage with speakers and event participants, and share their experience and exciting content on their social media platforms.

Program perks include a complimentary pass to the Festival, elevated social media presence during the event, access to select speakers and leaders, and lots of free food!

Requirements for the program include:

  • Represent the New Politics Forum and The Texas Tribune in a nonpartisan, professional manner
  • Attend all three days of the Tribune Festival, especially the #TTFstudents events, which include the BreakFESTs on 9/27 & 9/28, social media ambassador-specific meet-ups during the Fest, and Lunch n' Learn on 9/28 (location and time for all TBA)
  • Generate student-focused content using the #TTFstudents and #NPFxTrib hashtags for social media including, but not limited to, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat
