AKRON (April 2) — Two college basketball fans hit a 100-foot basketball hoop target from 500 feet in the air in the Goodyear blimp as part a contest hosted by the tire maker.
The winners — Stacey Freyer from Ohio State University and Jennifer Hanson of Georgetown University —were among four fans from each of the colleges competing in the final four semifinals.
Both students earned the prize package of accommodations and tickets for two to attend one of the sporting events where the Goodyear blimp will provide aerial coverage in the next 12 months.
The contest was built around Goodyear´s new "Get There" marketing campaign featuring the blimp.
