Advertising Education Sponsorship (AES)

Advertising Education Sponsorship (AES)

INSTANT GRATIFICATION. DONATE TODAY.

The next generation of industry innovators is learning the advertising profession today. The Advertising Education Sponsorship (AES) was created in 1988 to improve the quality of advertising education in the Southwest. Through faculty, student, professional and corporate funding for college-level competitions, your donations support superior academic and practical opportunities that transform bright students into brilliant creative thinkers.

There is no better way to support the future of our industry.

Student teams working towards the National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) national finals must first compete at the District level. As many as 18 teams from across four states vie for the opportunity to represent the Tenth District.

The tradition is rich: Tenth District collegiate teams have won more national champion titles than any other AAF District.

Your sponsorship of the A.E.S. program provides ongoing funding for student team travel and other expenses for the District competition, as well as scholarships for advertising students in the District. Because each year brings a new group of students to the District’s education initiatives, you will be offered an opportunity to renew your A.E.S. sponsorship annually.
