Special Integrated Communication Campaigns Course - Spring 2019
Students work on a project for entry in the American Advertising Federation’s national student competition.
Students have the very exciting opportunity to apply to join the special section of the Integrated Communication Campaigns course this spring. The course will be taught by Dr. Liza Stavchansky de Lewis.
The purpose of the special section is to allow our most talented and motivated students to work in a student run agency on a project for entry in the American Advertising Federation’s national student competition. The 2018-2019 client sponsor of the competition is the Wienerschnitzel brand.
Last year, the extremely talented and passionate student agency from our the Stan Richards School of Advertising and PR worked with Dr. Lewis and won the District 10 competition and competed in semi-finals. This year’s goal is to make it to the national stage.
A press release describing Wienerschnitzel’s challenging assignment is available here.
Class size will be limited to 20 to 25 students. The class will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays 11AM to 12:30PM (no higher level creative or media courses conflict with this time/day period).
The first round of competition will take place in Shreveport, LA at the 2019 AAF District 10, on April 2nd – April 5th, 2019.
All students in the class will travel to Shreveport.
In order to apply for admission – email Dr. Lewis the following:
- A cover letter (explaining why you should represent UT in the NSAC competition and what value you will add to the UT team – limit the letter to one page and use block business format);
- Your current resume; and
- Submit both documents no later than Wednesday, October 17th at COB (close of business = 5:30PM CST). Her email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next step is to interview with Dr. Lewis for 10 minutes on Wednesday, October 24th.
Dr. Lewis will contact you by Monday (10/22) if you qualify for an interview to arrange a time to meet on Wednesday (10/24). Please plan on having time between 10AM and 3PM on 10/24 for an interview – the turnaround is quick because the College needs to know who is admitted to the class before registration begins for the Spring 2019 semester.
