Awards Essentials

Welcome to the CASE District VIII Communications Awards, the annual program recognizing excellence in marketing and communications among our 130+ member institutions.

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the District VIII Conference in Vancouver, and to personally congratulate our winners. In a very competitive year, 148 out of 556 entries received Gold, Silver or Bronze recognition for their truly innovative, creative and inspiring projects.

Our Grand Gold category winners, representing the best in their group, were announced February 13, 2014. And on February 14, we were pleased to award Montana State University the 2014 Virginia Carter Smith Grand Crystal Award for Mountains and Minds magazine, recognizing the most outstanding entry of the year from among the nine Grand Gold category winners, as selected by a jury of CASE District VIII advancement professionals.
