Tori Burkhart, advertising; Allie Deiter, advertising; Addison Linn, public relations, and Kate Oxler, advertising, were announced as winners by the American Advertising Federation-Kansas City. 

As part of the scholarship package, each winner will receive support and counsel of a mentor from the membership of the professional American Advertising Federation network in Kansas City. They also will receive a one-year membership in the American Advertising Federation-Kansas City, invitations to all regular program activities of the association at no cost, membership in the American Advertising Federation, and $1,500 in financial assistance. 

The American Advertising Federation-Kansas City Foundation Scholarship was created to award college students who show a passion for advertising, marketing and graphic arts studies.
