Instagram is the new king of social media attracting the attention of students as well as businesses and consumers. With this in mind, Andy Wise and his students at Hempfield High School started a project of brand building through Instagram. The project expands the business and marketing knowledge of students in a platform that they already use on a regular basis and through the project the students are helping small businesses and communities expand their reach to the public consumer.
