In honor of its 100th anniversary, the group is looking to award $10,000 apiece to ten members to go toward paying off their college debt. The organization said it will award "a minimum" of ten awards in that amount at AWNY's centennial luncheon on Oct. 4.
According to the organization, the initiative is the first of its kind. "This is an unparalleled offer for our industry," said Kathleen Nagle, co-chair of the group's Young Executive Committee and account director at Redbook.
Then again, you'd expect AWNY to be ahead of the curve: It's been a force for women in advertising since the Titanic was still afloat and the year of Oreo's invention.
