Centenary College students win multiple Addy Awards, including Student Best of Show

SHREVEPORT, LA — Three Centenary College students won multiple awards at the annual Addy Awards sponsored by the Advertising Federation of Shreveport-Bossier (AAFSB), including the Student Best of Show award. The 2021 Addy ceremony was an entirely virtual event held on Saturday, February 27.

The ADDY awards program is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local ad club competitions. Centenary students and graduates have been entering the competition for several years and regularly win awards.

"The Addy Awards won by our students–particularly the Student Best of Show award–recognize Centenary student design work as among the strongest in north Louisiana,” said Jessica Hawkins, associate professor of communication at Centenary. “Though this year posed so many challenges, these students overcame those and went beyond simply meeting course requirements to create award-winning design projects. I'm so proud of both their work and their resilience."

Junior Teri Johnson won a Gold Addy and Student Best in Show for a rebranding campaign for Crawdaddy’s Kitchen. Other Centenary winners include:

Kendall Knaps (junior) - Bronze for Bayou Flippin' Magazine Ad Series, Bronze for Bayou Flippin' Integrated Campaign

Lila Beavers (senior) - Bronze for Cosmic Tea Dust Package Design; Bronze for Digitally Enhanced Photography, Gemini; Silver for Pandora Identity Campaign

The local phase of the ADDYs is the first of a three-tier, national competition that includes a district and then a national level. Johnson’s Gold Addy will advance to the 10th Addy District Awards to compete with the best work from Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.
