Earlier during the second semester Penn student, Alison Baker, has become the first student at Penn High School to receive an ADDY award from the American Advertising Federation (A.A.F).

An ADDY award is a “Michiana local competition for professionals” that is given to a special individual that demonstrates exceptional advertising skills weather that may be in the market, or for private use.

Because these awards are mostly given to professionals with years of experience, Alison is a very talented and lucky individual to be winning one as a high school student. We invited her into the studio to talk about about what the ADDY’s are all about as well as how she came to win one.
