Education has always been a core initiative of the AAF 4th District since it’s founding in 1924. Comprised of 18 professional advertising federations, three Ad2 chapters and 14 student chapters throughout Florida and the Caribbean we are committed to maintaining a high level of support to college chapters, National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) teams, and students in general. The District commits considerable financial resources each year to further enhance our educational programming and our support of students preparing to enter the varied fields of advertising. We encourage students through scholarships, internships and networking opportunities, and we work to prepare them to be the future leaders and stewards of the advertising industry.
