The Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District Marketing and Communications Office took home one gold and two silver Medallion awards Thursday from a national marketing organization for two-year colleges.
At its District 6 conference in San Diego Sept. 29, the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations lauded the district with:
- A Gold Medallion in the College Promotional Video category for its entry, “The Higher Edge Promise,” highlighting a scholarship program that will provide a free year of college to qualified graduates of the Grossmont Union High School District, starting in 2019.
- A Silver Medallion for feature writing for its entry, “Iraqi refugee credits Grossmont College for reigniting her hopes for the future,” about 2016 student commencement speaker Sandy Adwer.
- A Silver Medallion for original photography for its entry, “Soccer Goalie,” posted on the home page for Cuyamaca College.
The Medallion competition represents the only regional contest of its kind that honors excellence exclusively among marketing and PR professionals at two-year colleges. The District 6 region covers Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands and Territory of Guam. A record 375 entries were submitted this year by 47 institutions.
