NYF and Ogilvy Health have partnered to share an exciting opportunity for the next generation of creatives, a student creative brief competition. For the first NYF Health Student Challenge, entrants will be asked to create a new social campaign for A Walk on Water (AWOW)—a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring athletes with unique needs through surf therapy. Students will be provided a brief and the work will be judged by Adam Hessel, NYF Health Awards executive jury president and the NYF Health Executive Jury. The 2023 NYF Health Student Challenge winner will receive a NYF Health Awards trophy and be provided a paid internship at Ogilvy Health New York.

Says Scott Rose, executive director, NYF Health Awards: “As a supporting partner, Ogilvy has really stepped up to offer a double win for the student entrants. Adam’s idea to supply a brief to showcase student work and offer the winner the opportunity for a paid internship at Ogilvy Health New York truly supports the next generation as they advance into the healthcare advertising industry.”

Says Hessel: “This is a great opportunity to work on a brief for an amazing brand that does an incredible amount of good. Those who create the winning work will be offered the opportunity to intern at one of the best advertising agencies in the world, Ogilvy. My message to all interested students is ‘go for it and go big’!”
