Avalaunch Media Scholarship

At the base of the Wasatch Mountain Range sits Avalaunch Media’s headquarters. Within the office you’ll find a 2-foot statue of a yeti symbolizing the mission and purpose of our team. Although some don’t know what a yeti is, or if it even exists, the tall tale of the yeti inspires us. We’re on a quest to create believers in digital marketing through measurable results.

Our abominable snowman – Eddy the Yeti – surrounds our team of digital marketers who believe. Are you a believer?

We are excited to announce the launch of our annual Avalaunch Media Scholarship Contest. The winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship. Avalaunch Media is committed to supporting students in their educational pursuits and helping to develop the next generation of believers.
