Proud Supporter of the National Student Advertising Competition
Since 2002, Simmons has been a proud supporter of the National Student Advertising Competition, an annual competition sponsored by the American Advertising Federation.
The NSAC was developed to provide “real world” advertising experience to college students. Each year, a major advertiser is selected to participate and underwrite the competition. Sponsors have included Nissan, Toyota, The New York Times, Chrysler, State Farm Insurance, AOL and many others. Competing teams are given a case – a problem – to solve and must develop an advertising plan to address the case. Students are judged on the “Plans Book” they create, the actual creative itself and the presentation of their plan.Simmons provides direct access to Simmons research to teams that compete in the competition.
