Washington State Magazine
Magazine lands 'Grand Gold' in regional competition
Tuesday, Mar. 1, 2011
VANCOUVER, BC - Washington State Magazine recently won the "Grand Gold” honor for periodicals in the 2011 Communication Awards of the regional Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The award is given to the best entry in the periodicals categories, which includes Web-based and paper newsletters and magazines aimed at both internal and external audiences.
Judges praised the magazine for its story selection, writing and depth. At the same time, the judges said the magazine offers "visual storytelling beyond the printed word. It’s the magazine equivalent of a well–executed online multimedia presentation.”
Entries came from throughout CASE District VIII’s 130 member institutions in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana and western Canada. The nonprofit council honors the advancement efforts of educational institutions and covers alumni relations, communications, marketing and fundraising.
Washington State Magazine has won several awards in its 10-year history, but the Grand Gold is the biggest yet, said Editor Tim Steury.
The recognition is well deserved, said John Gardner, vice president for WSU advancement and external affairs.
"These are exciting times for WSU and we depend on outlets like Washington State Magazine to tell our stories and promote our successes to Cougars everywhere,” he said. "It’s good to know that we have such talent to do so.”
