Mohawk Advertising Students Sweep NACs


5th straight year for gold medal win at NACs

Mohawk Advertising students swept the National Advertising Challenge with gold, silver and bronze.

First-year Advertising students, Shem Joslyn and Nika Salazar-Johnson won gold and a paid internship at a Toronto agency. It was the fifth straight year that Mohawk has won gold in the student category. Second-year students Hussein Rumaithi and Angelica Carreno took the silver and merit categories, and second-year students Zachary Kumaczow and Allison Boyd won bronze.

All of this winners were competing against more seasoned students, says Advertising professor Jef Petrossi. Mohawk students have historically been at a disadvantage at this competition, he says because all third-year students are away on placement and unable to compete.
