the AAF and National Ad 2 and occurs in conjunction with the prestigious ADDY awards. Student ADDYs recognize and reward creative excellence by students, and like the professional ADDYS, the student ADDY awards is also a three-tier national competition. All across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners in one of 14 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national ADDY Awards competition. 

Since the introduction of Student Addy’s three years ago, Anderson University has dominated the local competition including an entire sweep of the awards two years ago. Additionally, AU designers have won multiple national awards on two occasions including last year’s Best of Show.
