Published: Mar 5, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 5, 2014) — The University of Kentucky received a total of nine awards – out of nearly 1,000 entries – for outstanding work in institutional advancement, alumni relations and communications in an annual competition sponsored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education District III. Awards were presented at the organization’s annual conference held in Orlando Feb. 16-19.

 

UK received two Grand Awards, the highest award given, for "seeblue.com" in the Recruitment Website or Microsite category (UK Public Relations and Marketing); and for “Blue. It’s Where Dreams Live.” in the Commercial or Public Service Announcement category (UK Public Relations and Marketing).

 

The university received three Awards of Excellence for the “Women & Philanthropy brochure” in the Multipage Publication or Folder category (Office of Development); for "'see blue.' at the University of Kentucky" in the Recruitment Video category (UK Public Relations and Marketing); and for the "Gatton United Building Campaign Website" in the Website category (Gatton College of Business and Economics).

 

UK received four Special Merit Awards for the “Ways to Give Booklet” in the Writing for Fundraising category (Office of Development); for the "Column for Planned Giving Tabloid" in the Writing for Fundraising category (Office of Development); for the “Ways to Give Booklet” in the Fundraising Publication category (Office of Development); and for “'see blue.' at the University of Kentucky” viewbook in the Recruitment Publication category (UK Public Relations and Marketing).

 

"We are honored to receive these awards from our peers," Tom Harris, vice president for university relations, said. "While awards are not why we do the work we do, it is nice to have the hard work of our communication and development professionals across campus recognized."

 

CASE District III advances and supports educational and professional institutions in the southeastern United States by enhancing the effectiveness of the alumni relations, fund raising, communications, marketing and other advancement professionals who serve them.

 

District III consists of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia and is the second largest district in the United States.
