Ver Meer earns top student ADDY Award

The Dordt College Art Department was honored recently when one of their students received the top ADDY® award in the student division on the local level. The Award Show Reception was held at the Sioux City Orpheum Theater on Saturday, February 19th, where entries for both the professional and student divisions were on display.

David Ver Meer, a senior, won a Gold ADDY award in the category of “Sales Promotion Packaging” for a project titled “Plastic Storm.” The project, completed over Christmas break, was the result of an individual studies project last semester.

The ADDY® Awards Show honors excellence in advertising and cultivates the highest creative standards in the industry. The competition begins at the local level with the 210 AAF member clubs’ competitions. From there, local winners proceed to fourteen regional competitions, and those winners proceed to the national finals.
