For this assignment, you will first select your topic (a city from North America) on the Discussion Board. You may not select a city that has been previously selected by another classmate. Recent candidate/host cities of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Vancouver also may not be selected. The Event Bid: Topic Selection is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 1.
Once you have selected a city, you will prepare a 2024 summer or 2026 winter Olympic Games bid. The assignment must be presented as a PowerPoint presentation which will be submitted in Blackboard and also posted in a Discussion Board forum for other students to view and later provide comments for the Event Bid Comments assignment due in Module/Week 5. You must provide a visually pleasing presentation which provides an adequate description without overloading individual slides with information.
