District Communications Team Receives Four National Awards

The Sun Prairie Area School District’s Communications team was honored by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) with three Publications and Digital Media Awards of Excellence and one Golden Achievement Award.

The District’s 2020-2021 Annual Report, 2020-2021 School Event Calendar, and Six Years of Continuous Improvement report were recognized with Publications and Digital Media Awards of Excellence. Meanwhile, the District’s work engaging the community to refresh its Strategic Plan was recognized with a Golden Achievement Award.

Golden Achievement Award entries were judged individually based on strategic communication best practices, good writing, and alignment with entry guidelines. Meanwhile, Publications and Digital Media Award entries were judged on their overall excellence and quality compared to other entries in the categories. The top award in each category is the Award of Excellence.

The theme for the conference was “Crossroad for Innovation and Transformation.” At the conference, Patti Lux and Adam Mumm, Sun Prairie Area School District Communications team members, presented on communications planning and engaged hundreds of school communicators across the country.
