The University of Minnesota School of Journalism & Mass Communication’s National Student Advertising Competition Team won first place in the American Advertising Federation’s National Student Advertising Competition District 8 contest, held April 26, 2009 at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. The team competed against several schools from South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Manitoba. This marks the sixth time in the past eight years that the U of M team has advanced to nationals. The American Advertising Federation sponsors the National Student Advertising Competition, a contest that draws teams from nearly 200 colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada and has been dubbed the “College World Series of Advertising.”

NSAC faculty adviser Howard Liszt said of the win, “I’m extremely proud of these students. They’ve worked tirelessly the past nine months and their win came from a real combination of commitment and creativity. They put forth an extraordinary effort and showed remarkable creativity as they developed a comprehensive campaign.”
