Thirty-Eigth Annual Educational Advertising Awards!

It was thirty-eight years ago that this national competition began to recognize the field of educational marketing and advertising.

As an educational marketing professional, the 38th Annual Educational Advertising Awards is your opportunity to test your programs and campaigns against the best in the country. A national panel of industry specialists will review each piece; judging creativity, marketing execution and message impact.

Judges award Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Merit designations to those entrants whose programs and materials display exceptional quality, creativity and message effectiveness. Our judges also present a select number of “Best of Show” awards. These are special commendations given to entrants whose work exhibits the highest standards of excellence.

This year, over 2,000 entries were received from over one-thousand colleges, universities and secondary schools from all fifty states and numerous foreign countries.

Sixteen institutions were recognized by the judges as a “Best of Show” winner. Gold awards were granted to 456 institutions, silver awards were awarded to 271 institutions and bronze awards were awarded to 165 institutions.

Judges for the Educational Advertising Awards consisted of a national panel of higher education marketers, advertising creative directors, marketing and advertising professionals.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s competition. Congratulations to all the winners.
