Our Bailey Lauerman Experience (BLX) intern team did big things last summer, and we’re proud to recognize their work. The team was made up of seven current or recently-graduated college students who worked on a variety of clients and projects under agency mentors. 2016 marked the sixth year of our BLX program, and we’re thrilled with what this team has accomplished over their eight weeks here at Bailey Lauerman.

The BLXers worked on two primary clients as an independent team: Special Olympics Nebraska and the Better Business Bureau. The team developed social media and public relations strategies as well as print, web and out-of-home advertisements to promote Special Olympics Nebraska’s annual Polar Plunge and the BBB’s annual Integrity Awards luncheon.

Our interns also worked on projects under agency mentors for major clients such as Cuties, Phillips 66 Lubricants, Panda Express and CommunityAmerica Credit Union.
