I have a great local story that would interest readers.
Michael Beaudoin, 25, MA resident has been taking the advertising world by storm. Winner of 4 national contests for companies such as Snickers, Tic Tac and Budget Rent a Car (earning more than $65K) he is now a top 10 contender in the "Wonderful Pistachios" contest. His commercial, "Farmers Get Crackin' " was selected out of 650+ videos. As part of a $15 Million Dollar campaign, Wonderful Pistachios will air the winning video on National television.
I think it's always exciting when a local has success, especially when he spends his days working in a cubicle. His catchy jingles and distinct commercials have already propelled him into the media, with appearances on MTV News, Access Hollywood, E! and mentions in People Magazine.
