Ivy Tech Community College students win Regional awards in ad competition

SELLERSBURG – Students from Ivy Tech Community College Southern Indiana in Sellersburg continue to bring home awards for their graphic design work. Two of Ivy Tech Community College’s visual communications students recently learned that their work was selected as regional award winners from the American Advertising Federation, competing against designs from Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. The students won Louie awards from the Advertising Federation of Louisville (AdFed) in February, and then their designs went on to compete on a regional basis for Addy awards.

Both of the winners took silver medals for their work. The winners are:
