Email Competition 2 1

Human Settlement on Mars – Email Marketing Competition


To celebrate the upcoming landing of the first human beings on Mars, we will be running a competition to prepare an Email Campaign for the next generation of colonists on Mars. You don’t need to be an astronaut to enter! All you need to do is create an Email Campaign for the first Human Settlement on Mars. Before you start to work on your competition, think through the following questions: Who will be on the first Martian settlement? What will they do on Mars? How will they get there? How will they get back? Could you imagine making a new world? What best subject line would you use? Think about what you can tell to people who have the opportunity to create a new world.
