I think we will see more of this stuff; it’s a fun and pretty cheap way of promoting careers to young people.
From the FPA release:
The Financial Planning Association (FPA) today announced that Kane Piper is the winner of the student BLOG STAR competition with the wonderful job of promoting financial planning as a career of choice.
Kane said that he was looking forward to starting as the Blog Star, which includes attending financial planning events around the country to interview financial planners and students, and market the profession to future planners.
“This is a great opportunity to network with the profession and my fellow students and become part of the financial planning community. I am excited about generating videos, pictorial and text based social media content,” Mr Piper said.

This prize also includes up to $25,000 worth of benefits including cash, handycam, MacBook and a Nokia phone to help Kane run a blog and website and interact with students to discuss the various aspects of choosing financial planning as a career.
