AAFN Announces Student ADDY Winners

2/22/2017

The 2017 student winners of AAF Nashville's American Advertising Awards competition were recognized on Tuesday night before a standing-room-only crowd. This year's competition included work from 157 individual students representing eight colleges and universities in Middle Tennessee. From a total of 320 entries, 79 winners were chosen and recognized with Student ADDY Awards at Play in Nashville.

 

Local competitions are the first of three steps for students hoping to earn a National ADDY Award. Nashville winners are now eligible to compete in the District 7 competition where they'll be judged against other winners from local AAF clubs in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana.
