District 58 earns communications awards from state organization

DOWNERS GROVE – School District 58 earned four communications awards last month from the Illinois chapter of the National School Public Relations Association for publications and projects produced during the 2012-13 school year.

District 58 earned an Award of Excellence, INSPRA's highest honor, for its website, www.dg58.org. District 58 earned Awards of Merit for the 2012 Annual Report to the Community, the Inside 58 staff newsletter, and the Schools of 58 Handbook for Families.

The awards were presented during a ceremony Sept. 20.

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 Mary Todoric, Director of Communications for Community High School District 128. "It also allows communications professionals to receive feedback in order to improve and better serve their school communities."
