Press Kit

These documents are provided as an example of a press release that can be sent to media outlets in early October. The "Press Release" document, below, is the final version of the example press release. The "Press Release: Highlighted" document has sections highlighted for where you can easily change the Florida State University-specific event information for you own. Please modify the Press Release for your own event, as needed.
