Jacqueline Bacud, a graduate student at LSUS and winner of Best of Show, shared the importance of students showcasing their work. “Competitions such as the Addy’s provide students like me a platform to not only showcase my skills and gain recognition, but also receive valuable feedback from industry professionals. These competitions can open up new opportunities and networks; and most importantly, help us grow and advance in our future careers,” said Bacud.  

Rachel McDonald, an assistant professor in the LSUS Digital Arts program, remarked on her students who earned a Gold Addy award for their submission titled “We Grow Together Nonprofit Campaign.” “I am fortunate to have had a great group of dedicated, creative students enrolled in the inaugural semester of DA 494: Design for Social Good. Seeing my students win two awards on the same night was an incredible feeling because I know just how much work they each put into the project and how much they truly deserve the recognition,” said McDonald.
