UA Students Win One Club's Bronze Pencil Award
A team of students from The University of Alabama's College of Communication and Information Sciences won a Bronze Pencil in the One Club's Young Ones College Competition and were selected for Honorable Mention in the Young Ones Client Pitch Competition. This is UA's first Pencil award.
The Young Ones College Competition highlights great student work from around the world, awarding Gold, Silver and Bronze pencils to the top student work in advertising, design and interactive. Of the Young Ones competition's 70 finalists from 16 countries, only 24 finalists won pencils.
The students' work is for Flight Plan, a fictional 501(c)3 organization that would work in partnership with the United Nations and Partners Global to turn the estimated 9.7 trillion unused frequent flier miles into physical, donatable items that could aid refugees around the world.
