30 Second Ad Challenge

The Missoula Gives 30-second Ad Challenge is a great way to tell people about the great work your organization does to benefit our community. The 30-Second Ad Contest winners will have their ads shared on KPAX TV, social media, and streaming services.  Winning Ads will be showcased on our social media and run on KPAX Media the week of Missoula Gives (social media, streaming, and television). This  video  can also be used on your giving day profile, in your future marketing efforts, and more.  Share your stories and show us what you do. Submissions will be voted on by the public, so you will have an opportunity to push your ad out and have your supporters to vote for you. The top finalists will have their video aired on local television. You can do this, it doesn't have to be professionally done. Submitted videos for the 30-second Ad Challenge will be aired on our social media leading up to and during May 2-3.

There will be 4 winning videos awarded in the following categories; Small Nonprofit, Medium Nonprofit, Large Nonprofit and Ravalli County Nonprofit.

VOTE April 15-25, 2024.
