The North Carolina School Public Relations Association (NCSPRA) recognized 35 school districts and handed out 255 awards during the annual Blue Ribbon Awards brunch and ceremony on January 27, 2017.
The popular awards program, which recognizes effective school communications and public relations, was held at the O. Henry Hotel in Greensboro.
A Blue Ribbon Award is the highest honor a school district can receive from NCSPRA. Awards are presented in eight categories with three award levels: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. In addition, a ‘Best of the Best’ award is presented to the most outstanding entry in each category.
The awards presented in January honor outstanding school communications efforts in 2016. The entries were judged by the Board of Directors of the Georgia School Public Relations Association.
