Verizon is driving a national rallying cry behind their simple, but deeply meaningful, hashtag #weneedmore through a multi-channel national campaign aimed at calling attention to the millions of students across the U.S., especially those from underserved communities, who lack technology in schools and exposure to careers in the science and technology sector.
To get the word out, Verizon tapped R/GA to launch an impressive surround sound campaign spanning traditional, social, and digital channels. Verizon teamed up with LeBron James, Drew Brees, and Adriana Lima for a powerful video spot letting kids know that we don’t need more basketball stars or models, but more scientists, engineers, mathematicians and tech professionals.
Along with a yearlong series of events and social activations, the #weneedmore campaign is powered by an electric content hub at weneedmore.com. The online content hub pulls in content from across the web centered around the #weneedmore hashtag and mission. The content hub is the campaign’s primary destination, with activities directing students, parents and teachers to the hub, where they can view, share and interact with content designed to spark students' curiosity and interest in science and technology.
Since launching in February, Verizon’s campaign has inspired and added fire to the ongoing conversation around how to encourage more students to pursue careers in STEM.
