SAA Takes Second Place at NSAC Competition
The School of Advertising Art is proud to announce that its student marketing team took second place in the National Student Advertising Competition District 5 event held April 21 at The Westin Cleveland Downtown in Cleveland, Ohio. The team of 20 second-year students also were awarded the “Best Creative” and “Best Promotion” distinction.

The National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC), sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, is the premier college advertising competition in the nation, providing more than 2,000 students the experience of creating a strategic advertising/marketing/media campaign for a corporate client. Students develop a marketing plan and then pitch their work to advertising professionals at the district, semi-final, and national levels. This year’s corporate sponsor is Ocean Spray: the world’s leading producer of cranberry juices and snacks, like Craisins® Dried Cranberries. This is the fourth year SAA has sent a team to the competition.

Other colleges represented in District 5 include the University of Kentucky, Miami University, Youngstown State University, Marshall University, and Murray State University.

SAA’s NSAC team members include: Brett Arnett, Alec Bell, Sara Bertka, Luka Bostick, Kayla Carraway, Lauryn Davis, Emmi Gordon, Paige Higgins, Indy James, Ashlee Langenkamp, Hunter Lewis, Jacob McDaniel, Lauren Murphree, Julie Perez, Lindsey Schulze, Anna Smith, Morgan Smither, Damon Troncone, Lindsay Welton and Alexis White. The team is advised by instructors Kelly Mercer and Brent Presley.
