The college received two NCMPR District 4 2017 Medallion Awards

The Northern Wyoming Community College District Marketing and Public Information Office has received two National Council for Marketing and Public Relations District 4 2017 Medallion Awards for their work.

NCMPR recognizes outstanding achievement in communication at community and technical colleges in 39 Medallion Award categories each year. NWCCD was competing against schools in Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.

A Discover Sheridan College digital ad won gold in the Digital Ad category. The ad features a photo of the newly built Whitney Center for the Arts with the Bighorn Mountains in the background and the word “Discover” with the Sheridan College logo. It was featured on Facebook during a spring 2017 social media campaign.

“Our job is to use creativity and design to try to connect potential students with all our college has to offer them,” said Wendy Smith, Marketing and Public Information Director. “Social media plays a big role in accomplishing that, so we’re proud to be recognized for our work in this category.”

The Sheridan College Generals Women’s Soccer program took home silver in the Sports Brochure or Sports Program category. The program functions as a traditional media guide and program but was designed with the schedule and team photo on the inside spread, so it can also be used as a poster.

“Dennis Jacobs, our photographer and graphic designer, wanted to showcase the athletes’ talent in action with this program, and he did just that,” Smith said.

“My team is hardworking, creative, and dedicated to our students so knowing our work is competitive in our region is just icing on the cake.”

The NCMPR District 4 Medallion Awards is the only regional competition of its kind that honors excellence exclusively among marketing and public relations professionals at two-year colleges. For more information, go to www.ncmpr.org.
