AAF-ND goes green at annual ADDY awards

The American Advertising Federation of North Dakota will present its ADDY Awards ceremony on Friday, Feb. 26, at the Fargo Holiday Inn. At this event, area advertising and marketing professionals will be awarded gold and silver ADDYs for their best work from 2009.

The event kicks off with a social and preview of winners at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m., and the ADDY ceremony at 8 p.m. A ceremony for the silver medal winner, AAF-ND's annual lifetime achievement award, is set for 10 p.m.

The event, called "ECO ADDYs" features an environmental theme including decorations made entirely of recycled materials and the first-ever ECO ADDY award presented for the piece or campaign that best supports the environment. Another highlight of the night will be a silent auction, from which proceeds will be used to fund student-related projects such as scholarships, trip funding and special student events.

Admission is free for AAF-ND members, $55 for nonmembers and $25 for nonmember students. Those interested in attending should go to for reservation information. Reservations should be made before February 19.
