Aéropostale seeks new faces for fall with Real Teens
Mar '10
Celebrating real, everyday teens across the country, New York-based retailer Aéropostale, Inc is seeking teenagers who demonstrate respect, integrity, and compassion for others no matter how big or small with the launch of their “Real Teens 2010” contest.

Aéropostale, a favorite brand among today's teenagers, is looking to engage teenagers all across the United States and Canada to tell their story on what it means to be a real teen living in today's world.

“Aéropostale recognizes that every teen has a story about doing good,” says Scott Birnbaum, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Aéropostale Inc. “The Real Teens campaign celebrates teens who are making a difference whether it's in their communities, at home or in school.”

Launching March 12, 2010, teens between the ages of 13 – 19 will have the opportunity to create an online profile highlighting how they exhibit qualities of an everyday teenager. Contestants will be required to submit up to five photographs, answer a brief personality questionnaire and answer why they feel they are a real teen.

The uniqueness of “Real Teens 2010” is that the teens are being voted for by their peers. The top 87 finalists will then be judged by a panel of industry celebrities to find the 8 Real Teens winners who will each receive a $5,000 college scholarship and the chance to be featured in Aéropostale's Fall 2010 marketing campaign.

The “Real Teens 2010” judging panel includes Ann Shoket, Editor in Chief of Seventeen magazine and former judge on “America's Next Top Model”; Paul Caine, Publisher of People magazine; Nancy Lublin, Chief Executive Officer of DoSomething.org and founder of Dress for Success; Taylor Gildersleeve, Actress “Haute and Bothered 2”; and Kent Haehl, Chief Executive Officer, Channel One Network.

Submissions must be received by April 11, 2010, and winners will be announced during the week of April 19, 2010. The contest is open to residents of the United States, Canada (excluding Quebec), and Puerto Rico.
