Thrive Under 35 Award
NEW HEROES REVEALED
Each spring, the Canton Advertising Federation has traditionally recognized a talented and dedicated professional from its ranks as the Ad Person of the Year.
While we intend to bestow that honor on a deserving individual next year, on May 17, the Canton Ad Federation will honor three of its best, brightest and most promising members with the Thrive Under 35 Award.
Heather West, production and traffic manager, Innis Maggiore; Dave Zingery, president, SquareShare Studios, LLC; and Tyler Campanelli, student, Stark State College, make up the three category winners for account services, creative and student award, respectively.
Nominees were selected based on several criteria, including business or classroom innovation, talent, involvement in the advertising community and the community at large, marketing savvy and contributions to an organization and or education institution.
The Thrive Under 35 committee is made up of diverse members from the Canton Advertising Federation membership. In addition, judges were selected from outside the organization and the Stark County community in order to prevent any bias in the selection process.
These three overachievers demonstrate innovation in the paths they pave, and make a positive impact on the environment they thrive in. Join us as we honor and encourage two extraordinary young professionals under 35 and one student to continue the development of their profession in advertising.
