Design an AD Competition Winners

Copy of designad

The Design an AD Challenge introduced middle and high school students to a new way of using their creative problem solving skills and talents.

Discovering how professionals in the advertising, marketing, and media industries provide creative solutions to problems every day, is what the Foundation wanted to expose to students.

Many found this exercise exciting…using both your thinking skills and their visual skills…inspiring them to think outside the traditional career boxes…we wanted them to think about pursuing careers in the industry.

We received work that far exceeded our expectations and yet, met the criteria and rules set forth by each of the briefs.
