Event Bid Instructions


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.


The Event Bid: Presentation is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 4.

Sources for all information used must be provided using APA format.  You must use current, original sources to gather information (pages such as Wikipedia,, etc, are not acceptable for this level of work).  Rather than including a reference page, you should place sources in the “notes” window below the power point slide in which the source information is used.  Leave a blank line between each separate source in the notes window.  This project must be your sole work, according to the Liberty University honor code.
