Each year, the Wilson ITA National Promoter of the Year Award recognizes two student-athletes who advance the game of tennis by devoting consistent time and effort to promotional activities, and by supporting and bringing awareness to their school program and to college tennis in general. The winners receive a paid summer internship to work at Wilson's global headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, in its Grassroots Marketing department.
The National Promoters of the Year will assist with the day-to-day projects for the entire Grassroots and Marketing team. Interns will have an opportunity to work and experience all the different facets of Wilson Racquet Sports from tennis balls, racquets (performance and recreational), promotions/marketing, U.S. tour, indoor (racquetball, squash, badminton and paddle), accessories and apparel/footwear.
The 2018 National Promoters of the Year, Eugenia Sanchez and Kelsey Grambeau, recently shared their experiences working at Wilson. You can read their recap here
