AxcessCapon Teaching Innovation Competition

The Association of Collegiate Marketing Educators (ACME) with generous financial support from AxcessCapon, recognizes and rewards teaching innovations in the marketing discipline. The goal of the competition is to recognize marketing educators for developing innovations to enhance student learning. For the purposes of the competition, an innovation is an individual or group assignment, project, method, activity, event, example, or illustration that helps students better understand a concept, practice, method, or career-related issue in marketing.

ACME invites you to submit your teaching innovations for consideration.

The competition is open to instructors (full-time, part-time, faculty members, or graduate students) in any field, but the innovation must be related to teaching marketing.  Applicants may be individual faculty members or faculty teams that have jointly developed a teaching innovation.  Each team member must have made a significant contribution to a multiple-member entry.  The innovation must not have been previously published, recognized in a competition, or received any type of award.

The top innovation will be awarded a $500 prize; the other two innovations will each receive a $250 prize.

Submit your entry via email by 5:00 pm CST on November 30, 2017 to the Chair of the Selection Committee, Grant Aguirre, at
