On Wednesday we welcomed the United Way Spark Prize finalists for a pre-conference pitch practice session with employees from Delta Airlines MBA Associates Program, who volunteered their time to provide feedback and guidance. Each Spark prize finalist had the opportunity to present their three-page project summary and practice the 3 minute pitch that they will be giving for the judges at tomorrow's final round.
All 12 organizations were able to pitch and get feedback on how to improve their message. At the end of the session, finalists had the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with the Delta MBA associates to make final edits. Delta's MBA associates were impressed with the pitches and the finalists left with great feedback to help them hone their presentations. The final round of the Spark Prize competition will take place at United Way's C3 Conference, happening tomorrow at the Marriott Marquee.
