Scholarship Announcement, USI NSAC Team, District ADDY Viewing
We have a new location for this luncheon! Please join us at the Old Courthouse Ballroom so you can not only witness our scholarship and NSAC presentation by the USI team, but also for the opportunity to view ADDY entries from the District 6 competition that includes 13 different AAF organizations including Chicago, Indianapolis and West Michigan.
Each year the Education and Scholarship Committee seeks and selects the best candidates from the Tri-State area who are pursuing careers in advertising, marketing, public relations and graphic design. We invite the recipients’ families and our membership to congratulate the winners at the annual luncheon.
AAF of Greater Evansville is a supporter of The University of Southern Indiana National Student Advertising Competition team. Annually a corporate sponsor provides a case study outlining the history of its product and current advertising situation. The case study reflects a real world situation to challenge students’ critical thinking abilities and creativity. This year’s sponsor was Tai Pei Asian frozen foods. Students must research the product and its competition, identify potential problems and develop an integrated communications campaign for the client. Each student team then “pitches” its campaign to a panel of judges.
Doors open at 11:30 am for entry viewing and networking, with the luncheon to begin at Noon. Members attend for free and guests/nonmembers are only $15 per person.
If a reservation is made and guests (members or nonmembers) are unable to attend or cancel after deadline, an invoice for the reservation will be issued. As a non-profit organization, we strive to keep our costs down to best serve our members.
