Yesterday marked the last day of our semester long advertising workshop at the Academy at Palumbo in South Philadelphia.  We ended up with a great group of students who were eager to learn about all aspects of advertising, from research to creative execution.   Our final presentation is set for next Monday December 10th, where the students will get a chance to explore Temple’s campus and present their hard work to executives of the Philly Ad Club, Philabundance, and local news outlets.  We feel confident that the creative work demonstrated by the students Great Food Fight campaign will lead us to victory in our classroom competition for the best advertising campaign.  The overall experience of participating in this community based learning program was enriching because we got to teach and re-affirm our knowledge of advertising, and learn from the students who brought unique creative ideas to the table.
