Hi everyone, I’m Jill Grabenkort, associate promotions manager for PlayStation. From time to time, I’ll chime in here with updates on some of our promotional work. Back in mid-March, we kicked-off the 4th annual PlayStation AM JAM tour in conjunction with Camp Woodward. This series of events is a nation-wide talent search for amateur action sports athletes. After hosting these events in 11 cities across the nation with more than 850 of the best action junkies showing off their stuff, we narrowed down the competition this month and I think we’ve found the best-of the best.
Over the past week, the PlayStation AM JAM finals were held at Camp Woodward, and it was definitely a cool site to see. If you’re not familar with it, Camp Woodward is the *premiere* actions sports training facility in the country. Check out the above pic of the PlayStation AM JAM winners. Chris O’Reilly (Skate Vert), Cody Porsche (Inline), Louie Lopez (Skate Park), and Kyle Kelsey (BMX) each took home a check for $5,000 and a scholarship to Woodward Camp for the 2008 season. In the next few days, I’ll try and drop in some video here from the finals.
Our congrats to the PlayStation AM JAM winners! For those of you looking for info on upcoming events, stay tuned….
