Congratulations to this year’s Excellence in Communication Awards winners, who were honored at the 2018 Annual Seminar at the Omni Hotel in San Diego on March 3.
Our school communication professionals are leaders in their organizations, working hard every day to connect stakeholders to their systems, to build and maintain trust in schools, and to improve the lives of kids through support and understanding for public education. This year’s award winners represent the best of that work.
There were 94 entries in this year’s program, with 14 Award of Merit winners and 19 Award of Excellence winners.
Awards were judged by a panel that included school PR professionals from the New York School Public Relations Association, or NYSPRA, as well as other PR pros in a variety of fields including nonprofit, higher education, and corporate PR. We were also fortunate to have two PRSA Fellows as judges. The PRSA College of Fellows is the gold standard of the world’s largest association of PR professionals. The significance and distinction of the ‘Fellow PRSA’ designation after one’s name are akin to the Academy Award of public relations.
Neither the CalSPRA Board, nor its Awards Committee, were involved in the judging of entries to ensure impartiality.
Congratulations to everyone!
