The St. Charles Community College Marketing and Communications Department took home two Gold Medallion awards at the annual National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) District 5 fall conference.
SCC earned the top prize in the Electronic Catalog, Schedule, Viewbook, Annual Report and Successful Recruitment or Marketing Program categories for the 2017-18 Annual Report and Spring 2019 Open House campaign, respectively.
“We changed directions completely on the Annual Report from previous years,” said Heather McDorman, vice president for marketing and student life. “We shifted our focus from a print version to an online-only version. We are honored to be recognized for the hard work and determination it took to make this a reality.”
According to the judges, SCC’s Annual Report was an “outstanding use of the medium” and “the pacing and variety of the content was right on.”
“There are some amazing marketing and communication teams in District 5,” said Jay Scherder, director of marketing and communications. “We are proud and humbled to be seen as a leader in the field.”
The judges were equally impressed with the Spring 2019 Open House campaign, stating it was “comprehensive, yet not boring. Complete but not cliché. Excellent work!”
