“Winning the Young Ones Competition gives students solid credibility in a hyper-competitive world,” said Emily Grotheer, Education Director of The One Club. “In today’s job market, graduating students must find news ways to distinguish themselves, especially in such sought-after fields like advertising and design. Young Ones provides recognition, exposure and access to industry leaders in a time when a degree alone is no longer enough.”

Gold Pencil winners include School of Visual Arts/Ranchos Palos Verdes, The Creative Circus/Atlanta, School of Visual Arts/New York, Pratt Institute/Brooklyn, Texas A&M University-Commerce/Carrollton and Otis College of Art & Design/Lennox. Their award-winning work includes “POP-fi,” “The Teachers Who Built Us,” “Missing School Cartons,” “Carlos,” “Bad Things vs. Education,” “Face-Value Microsite,” “Retractable Pencils of Promise” and “Corporate Identity Design.”

One of the longest-standing competitions of its kind, this year's challenge offered students a choice of two briefs aimed at creating solutions for social change. The first, Pencils of Promise, gave students the opportunity to shed light on the global education crisis affecting millions of students across the globe. The second, Justice by Design, provided students with the opportunity to tackle human rights issues by using design to communicate data for the sake of social justice.
