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 2016 awards, the new "Platinum" category continues, and 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. We plan on adding a couple of new award categories, too, so check back later this month for more details.

Eligibility and entry dates

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

  • Eligible entries must have been produced between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015
    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 8 to October 23, 2015.

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

See you in Calgary!
