Be a part of an award-winning design program! Our students have won over 120 awards in the past 8 years both regionally and nationally. Our students are active in the American Advertising Federation ADDY® competition and are encouraged to compete annually. Cash scholarships are given each year to the Best of Show student winner! 

Entering competitions is an important step in building your resume for your creative career.  Scholarships are available to those students who need assistance in entering their work. We want to make sure that all students have the opportunity to compete and showcase their work to the professional community.


To honor our students, the faculty and AAF-CC board of directors host a student awards breakfast on the Monday following the annual ADDY® Awards. Underwritten by Wienerschnitzel of Corpus Christi, the awards breakfast recognizes our award recipients and provides a platform for University and Departmental leaders to congratulate our students.
