HAMMOND | For the second time in the past four years, Purdue University Calumet marketing and communication students have placed first in district competition of the National Student Advertising Competition to earn a berth in the national finals.

A team of five students, taught and mentored by Advertising and Marketing Instructor Matt Hanson, placed first in one of two District 6 competition tracks, which attracted 19 college and university teams from Indiana, Illinois and Michigan earlier this month.

Autumn Cueller of Crown Point; Tristen Comegys of Chesterton; Celina Lewis of Hobart; Vincent Benjamin Lopez, of Hammond; and Julie Yarusinsky, of Hammond comprise the Purdue Calumet student team. 

Finals of the national competition will be held June 5-8 in Phoenix.
