Langley students pass creativity test

Langley businesses reached out to Langley students in a mutually beneficial effort, in the Langley Advance’s third annual Design an Ad promotion.

The students gained some firsthand understanding of the advertising industry, while the business people gained the satisfaction of sharing an educational experience with the youngsters – and they got some great advertising as a bonus.

This year, Design an Ad put the artistic talents of students from 13 classrooms at 10 different schools to the test, designing newspaper advertisements for a couple dozen local businesses and organizations.

We hope they all had fun… because the results were certainly enjoyable.

The students came up with their own advertising designs and ideas, and then turned them into ads to be printed in the Advance.

Flip through the pages of this special Design an Ad section, and you’ll find that the students put together insightful, creative, thoughtful, and often humorous advertisements highlighting the strengths of their subjects, and carrying compelling messages to promote customer participation through purchase of products and services.

The businesses and groups chose which students’ advertisements to run in the section.

You’ll also find photos of the students who had their hands in producing the ads.

Participating students were from R.C. Garnett Demonstration, Belmont, Langley Fundamental, Shortreed, Parkside Centennial, Alex Hope, Willoughby, Simonds, Gordon Greenwood, and Langley Meadows Elementary Schools.
