AAF of Dubuque 2016 Public Service Campaign Recipient Announced

American Advertising Federation of Dubuque (AAF Dubuque) is pleased to announce The Great Midwestern Educational Theatre Company (GMETC) as its selection for the 2016 public service campaign.

Annually, AAF Dubuque selects a local non-profit organization that will receive marketing assistance at no cost. Examples of services donated by the public service committee include logo development, design of print pieces and advertising, strategic planning, and copywriting.

This year the AAF Dubuque public service committee will work with the organization’s leaders to advertise GMETC’s 2016 Frogwarts School of Wizardry role-play and creativity summer camp. It will also help the organization update its website, print materials, email marketing, and social media. Those interested in volunteering their time, talents, and marketing expertise to GMETC by serving on the 2016 AAF public service committee should contact Kristin Hill, Public Service Chair, by emailing khill@cityofdubuque.org.

The Great Midwestern Educational Theatre Company (GMETC) produces theatrical productions, storytelling performances, role-play events, classes, and camps that promote learning and engage the creative spirit in children of all ages. Through relevant, thought-and-emotion provoking experiences in the theatre arts, they inspire young people to connect with literature and appreciate how the arts can help them become the best people they can be.

Annually, GMETC offers the Frogwarts School of Wizardry role-play and creativity summer camp for youth in grades three through ten. Originally inspired by the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, the camp primarily consists of literacy and character development curriculum. All attendees, staff included, take on a role-playing wizard persona. In addition to critical thinking and literacy skills, the program provides experiential training in empathy and compassion through drama.
