The American Advertising Federation – Spokane puts on the annual awards, which is one of the biggest of its kind in the area. All gold and silver awards are eligible for competition at the district level.

In addition, two NIC graphic design majors, Hannah Stack and Julie Sutcliffe, both of Post Falls, were awarded Toni Marie Robideaux Scholarships. In the last 13 years since the scholarship has been awarded to aspiring design students, NIC students have received it 13 times. The TMR Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship that was created in memory of Robideaux, one of AAF Spokane’s most influential leaders, and recognizes and rewards student achievement and excellence in the arts.
