Seven students won a total of 20 Louie Awards on Friday with a total of 14 Gold Louies and 6 Silver Louies. All the winners are now eligible to compete at the district level. The district competition is comprised of a 3-state area including Kentucky, West Virginia, and Ohio.

When you see our students please congratulate them for such a fantastic accomplishment. From left to right: Michael Phelps, Kimberly Raber, Kim Oldham, Rebekah Cohen, Andrea Koesters, Sirima Rattanamanokorn, Ty Lancaster.
Congratulations go out to our wonderful faculty as well. Without you here to support, mentor, and instruct our students, we could not do what we do for our students. Thank you all.

3 CAT Students win 5 District ADDY Awards for yet another new record
I am honored and extremely proud to announce that the following 3 students from the Communication Arts Technology program, Kim Oldham, Rebekah Cohen, and Andrea Koesters, have won 5 coveted ADDY Awards at the American Advertising Federation's 5th District ADDY Competition. This is a 3 state competition that includes Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio. These 3 CAT students finished with five District ADDY Awards, the most ADDY’s ever won by our students in 10 years of competition. They finished second in total awards behind Dayton but well ahead of Columbus, Cincinnati, Akron and Toledo.
Plus, ALL of the District 5 ADDY Awards won by Kentucky students went to Louisville area students. Besides JCTC, only Ivy Tech in Indiana won an award at the 5th District competition this year.
No other students from Kentucky won any awards at the district level this year. The ONLY winners at the district level from the state of Kentucky came from Jefferson Community & Technical College. No other schools in the state had a winning entry. Did I mention that the ONLY Kentucky students who had winning entries at the district competition this year are from JCTC? I'm just sayin'.
And SOOOOO…the ONLY students from Kentucky who will be participating at the National ADDY Awards Competition this year will be from…wait…wait for it…
Jefferson Community & Technical College.
Here is the winners list:
Andrea Koesters won a GOLD District 5 STUDENT ADDY in the Sales Promotion category for Bird & Bee Honey Tea P.O.P. Display. (This marks only the second time in the history of our CAT program that one of our students has won a Gold ADDY at the district level)
Andrea Koesters won a SILVER District 5 STUDENT ADDY in the Sales Promotion category for Bird & Bee Honey Tea Packaging.
Andrea Koesters won a SILVER District 5 STUDENT ADDY in the Elements of Advertising category for Bird & Bee Honey Tea Logo.
Kim Oldham won a SILVER District 5 STUDENT ADDY in the Elements of Advertising, Color Photography category for Bread.
Rebekah Cohen won a SILVER District 5 STUDENT ADDY in the Sales Promotion category for Rayo Azul Tequila P.O.P. Display.
The work of these 3 students will represent District 5, Kentucky, Louisville, Jefferson Community & Technical College, and the Communication Arts Technology Program at the national level of the American Advertising Federation’s ADDY competition this week. Winners will be announced in late May or early June.
Please join us as we congratulate all of these Jefferson students in their truly outstanding accomplishments and wish them the best of luck at the national competition.
All the fantastic work from these students and the work from the local ADDY competition can be seen on this CAT website from the "gallery" page on the main menu at the top of this page. ______________________________________
