Student Conference & Competition

Thank you to our online sponsors and corporate members

The AAF-H Student Advertising Career Conference & Competition is one of the AAF’s student-focused initiatives that provides attendees with sessions and networking opportunities with professionals in our city and district to help launch a career in the industry. College students who are interested in exploring the various aspects of and roles in the advertising industry have the opportunity to learn from real-world professionals from prominent agencies and brands.

In previous years, at the center of the event is our highly intense and recognized competition where students from all over the region are asked to work in teams to create a comprehensive marketing, advertising and public relations campaign for the sponsoring company or brand. Also included are professional workshops, speakers and exciting sessions to develop networks, knowledge and skills in advertising.

The conference also allows the attending professors an opportunity to stay up to date on industry trends to enhance their curriculum and network with other education professionals.

It has been declared by attending students and professors as being one of the nation’s most outstanding advertising educational experiences. A variety of Houston’s advertising professionals volunteer at every level of the event.
