Downers Grove Grade School District 58 was recently recognized by the Illinois chapter of the National School Public Relations Association for outstanding communications during the 2011-12 school year.
The District 58 Communications Department earned three awards for publications and projects produced last school year: the Award of Excellence, INSPRA’s highest honor, for its 2011 Annual Report to the Community, as well as for its Strategic Plan brochure. The district also earned an Award of Merit for its e-newsletter, Communicate 58.
The awards were presented during a ceremony in Oak Brook on Sept. 21.
The INSPRA Communications Contest is an annual opportunity for school districts to submit publications and projects for judging by a panel of experts. The judges apply a rubric to evaluate each entry against the highest standards in professional communications.
“The contest highlights outstanding communications efforts throughout Illinois,” said INSPRA President Carla Erdey, director of communications for Consolidated High School District 230. “It also allows communications professionals to receive feedback in order to improve and better serve their school communities.”
