Awards Essentials

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

For the 2015 awards, you'll notice two big changes. First, we now have a new "Platinum" category that is fully aligned with the CASE international Circle of Excellence awards. The Platinum categories recognize the best-of-the-best programs and practices in educational advancement.

Second, and as a result of this alignment, our eligibility and entry periods have shifted.

  • Eligible entries must have been produced between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014
    If a majority of  work was done prior to the deadline, it is okay for submission.
  • The awards competition entry system will be available from September 2 to October 24, 2014.

If you have questions about the awards program, please contact one of the Awards Co-Chairs.

See you in Seattle!

Plan to join CASE VIII as we recognize your great work! Communications Awards will be presented at the annual CASE VIII District Conference in Seattle February 4 to 6, 2015.
