The Silver Medal is the highest award that can be

given by an American Advertising Federation Chapter


The Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) to recognize people who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, AAF member clubs bestow this honor upon outstanding members of the local advertising community.
