GVSU APR Alumna Wins ADDY Recognition

GVSU Alumna Wins ADDY

Each year, the American Advertising Federation of West Michigan (AAFWMI or AdFed) hosts the ADDYs–an award ceremony that recognizes the excellent work of students and professionals in advertising from West Michigan.  This year’s ceremony was held on the 4th and 5th floors of the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art (UICA) in downtown Grand Rapids.

Part of the ADDYs is the Silver Medal Award, which was established in 1959 and is bestowed to outstanding members of the advertising community.  This year, GVAPR alumnus Amy Hallochak was honored with a Silver Medal Award.  She graduated from Grand Valley last Spring with a B.S. in Advertising and Public Relations as well as Film and Video Production. She currently works as an Assistant Account Executive at Doner in Southfield, Michigan.

  1. Please Note: The Silver Medal Addy Award was earned by the 19 GVSU students who comprised the 2015 National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) team for their integrated marketing communications campaign for Pizza Hut. Also noteworthy: These GVSU alums have landed great jobs at places like Google, Doner Agency in Detroit and other fantastic positions!

  2. To build off of Robin’s comment above, the team did not win the Silver Medal Award in 2016. It should read that the team won a Silver ADDY in the Cross Platform – Integrated Campaigns category. Thanks!
