CCS Students Garner 17 Regional Addy Awards

The 2020 regional awards from the American Advertising Federation (AAF) have been announced, and CCS students garnered 17 American Advertising Awards — aka, Addys — across three categories in the Student Division. Awarded via the American Advertising Federation of Greater Flint, the students took home Gold and Silver awards for projects in the Film, Video & Sound; Online/Interactive; and Cross-Platform (multimedia) categories.

The American Advertising Awards recognize and reward creative excellence in advertising via an annual competition that attracts more than 40,000 entries at the local and regional levels. Local Addy winners go on to compete at the regional level in 15 district competitions, culminating in the national Addys, awarded each year at the ADMERICA Conference.

The ADMERICA conference takes place in June 2020 in Palm Springs, Florida.
