Wor-Wic Community College received a gold award in the student viewbook category for its 2019 “You Book” and a merit award in the special video category for its 2019 holiday greeting in the 35th Annual Educational Advertising Awards, sponsored by “Higher Education Marketing Report,” a monthly magazine covering the admissions marketing field.
A national panel of industry specialists reviewed each piece of the Annual Educational Advertising Awards, judging creativity, marketing execution and message impact. Judges awarded gold, silver, bronze and merit designations to those entrants whose programs and materials displayed exceptional quality, creativity and message effectiveness. Judges also presented a select number of “Best of Show” awards to entrants whose work exhibits the highest standards of excellence. This year, more than 2,350 entries were received from about 1,000 colleges, universities and secondary schools from all 50 states and several foreign countries. Sixteen institutions were recognized by the judges as “Best of Show” winners. Gold awards were granted to 294 institutions, silver awards were given to 201 institutions and bronze awards were awarded to 157 institutions. Judges for the awards consisted of a national panel of higher education marketers, advertising creative directors, marketing and advertising professionals and the editorial board of the “Higher Education Marketing Report.”
The college also recently received a bronze Paragon Award from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations in the e-card category for its 2018 holiday greeting video. The Paragon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in design and communication at two-year community and technical colleges. It's the only national competition of its kind that honors excellence exclusively among marketing and public relations professionals at two-year colleges.
