Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty today announced the Saskatchewanderer marketing project will continue for a third year. Hiring for the ‘best summer job ever’ starts this week.
“The Saskatchewanderer project has been popular and we are proud to continue it,” Doherty said. “The social media aspect engages Saskatchewan residents and truly celebrates our province which is our ministry’s mandate. We might issue a challenge or two to this year’s Wanderer to shake things up, but you’ll have to follow him or her to see what that entails.”
The Saskatchewanderer is a summer student position designed to market and raise awareness of Saskatchewan. The job requires the student to travel around the province and blog about their adventures through writing, photos and video.
Students who are interested can apply at www.saskatchewanderer.ca. Submissions will be accepted from February 13 to March 1 at noon.
Once again, Bennett Dunlop Ford and CAA Saskatchewan have signed on as sponsors.
“We're proud to have our vehicles travelling the province and helping tell the great stories here,” Bennett Dunlop Ford Marketing Manager Justin Reves said. “We've loved the project, exposure and following the journey ourselves.”
“CAA Saskatchewan is pleased to once again have the Saskatchewanderer back in the drivers’ seat,” VP of Member Services Rhonda Smith said. “Since signing on in 2011, our sponsorship has included a CAA Membership for roadside assistance as well as gasoline gift cards, all roadworthy items to keep our Wanderer safe and sound. We look forward to following the adventures.”
Past Saskatchewanderers include Andrew Konoff (2011) and Jeff Stock (2012). Last summer’s highlight video can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hc29sUyGAOM&feature=player_embedded.
