NEW ALBANY, IN — SmartBox Web Marketing, a digital marketing firm listed as one of Louisville metropolitan area’s fastest-growing companies, wants to give away thousands of dollars to four Lanesville Junior-Senior High School seniors.
The award-winning and nationally recognized New Albany company is now accepting applications for its paid summer internship program and scholarship award. This is the first year SmartBox Web Marketing has offered these programs.
Colin Receveur, Founder and CEO of SmartBox Web Marketing, is a Floyds Knobs native. Receveur’s wife, Amanda, and several members of the SmartBox Web Marketing team are graduates of Lanesville Junior-Senior High School.
“Lanesville Junior-Senior High School is a special place for my family and so many of our team members, so we want to give young students an opportunity to find their future career — which may be right here in New Albany,” Receveur said. “More importantly, these programs are a great opportunity for those students to figure out how they want to spend the next 40 or 50 years of their lives in the workforce.”
The new “Future of Marketing” scholarship of $1,000 will be granted to two students who plan to study online marketing in college and have maintained a 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
The new “Future of Marketing” entrepreneurship will allow two seniors to gain real-world work experience alongside digital marketing professionals at SmartBox Web Marketing. The students will be selected to spend a 60-day paid entrepreneurship in the headquarters of one of the country’s fastest-growing private companies. The selected students will gain a wealth of knowledge in areas like digital marketing, copywriting, sales, video production and much more from this exclusive internship. Eligible students must have maintained an accumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.
Receveur visited Lanesville Junior-Senior High School in March to discuss the internship and scholarship. He’s looking forward to working with the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders.
“Our company is always looking to inspire the next generation, but this is also a great opportunity for these students to gain real-life work experience before they enter the workforce or head off to college,” Receveur said. “We look forward to working with these students this year and for years to come.”
Students can apply for the internship and scholarship at www.SWMFutureOfMarketing.com. The application deadline is May 1.
