Richardson, a senior at the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI), received the award at a ceremony which was held St. Thomas on 30th April.
Presented by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) of the U.S. Virgin Islands, the award show recognizes outstanding advertising in the Virgin Islands.
Richardson won the award for his “I Am Drama: School of Theatrical Arts” campaign which included print, radio and television advertising. Richardson, president of the AAF UVI Ad Club, also created a Facebook page for the campaign.
“Winning this award was the crowning achievement thus far in my advertising and marketing career,” Richardson said. He called it “a jewel in the crown of my academic achievements.”
Richardson, who is majoring in business administration with a concentration in marketing, hopes to own an advertising agency and be a marketing consultant.
