What is the AES?
AES is the acronym for Advertising Education Sponsor. Member sponsors are committed to financially assisting the district in maintaining a high level of support to AAF College Chapters, AAF National Student Competition Teams, and advertising students in general.
Dues from clubs cannot adequately support all of the education programs, and most schools are cutting their budgets to the bone.
AES sponsors in AAF District 3 make it possible for teams from throughout Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina to compete in the AAF’s prestigious National Student ADvertising Competition.
Winners from this competition often receive a multitude of professional and scholastic opportunities. Will you help these kids achieve their dreams?
