Dear Morningside Naturals Community,
We're excited to share a remarkable experience that unfolded after the Thanksgiving holiday. Michigan State University Athletics hosted the second EverGreen NIL Celebration, a groundbreaking event that spotlighted the outstanding achievements of student-athletes in the Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) space.
Breaking Barriers and Setting Records
Michigan State stands out as the only Power 5 school in the country to host such a celebration. Adding to the accolades, the Spartans were honored as the 2023 NIL Summit's winner for the best institutional program. As proud sponsors of this event, Morningside Naturals is thrilled to have been part of this historic occasion.
Empowering Through Education
The EverGreen NIL Celebration wasn't just about celebrating wins; it was about empowering student-athletes to continue innovating in the NIL space. Michigan State partnered with digital content creator and NIL content advisor, Sam Green, to lead a two-day workshop on content creation and bringing brand partnerships to life.
Over 100 student-athletes participated in this workshop, hosted and sponsored by AC Marriott. They received hands-on education from Sam Green on everything they need to know to succeed in NIL on social media. From creating custom videos with captions, music, and transitions to engaging with brands on-site, the workshop covered it all.
Morningside Naturals in Action
Morningside Naturals actively participated in this initiative by providing samples for athletes to incorporate into their content creation exercises. Alongside other esteemed brands like Cherish Cherry Juice, Good Molecules, and Riot Energy, Morningside Naturals played a role in shaping the next generation of content creators and athletes.
Partnerships That Make a Difference
Our commitment to empowering athletes extended beyond the workshop. In collaboration with AC Marriott, we partnered with interested athletes on individual NIL deals. Athletes earned free nights for their families at the East Lansing hotel in exchange for social media posts created with Sam Green’s expert guidance.
A Celebration of Innovation and Collaboration
We are proud to be part of an initiative that goes beyond celebration to focus on education and empowerment. The EverGreen NIL Celebration showcased the potential of young talents and their ability to innovate in the NIL space.
Thank you for being a part of the Morningside Naturals community and supporting initiatives that uplift and inspire. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to make a positive impact together!
