Congratulations to three of our outstanding clients– East Village High School, Clairemont High School and Honorable Thomas P. Nugent, who were recipients of awards at San Diego Press Club’s 43rd Annual Excellence in Journalism Awards! At this year’s event, there were approximately 1300 entries with around 450 awards in first, second and third combined. This is among the largest regional competitions in the United States, making it a huge honor for our clients to be recognized. As PR professionals, our work is first and foremost about being effective in everything that we do for our clients.
East Village High School took first place, being recognized under “General Writing for External Publications” for a press release featured in the Union Tribune entitled, “San Diego Early/Middle College, Now East Village High School, Offers a High School Diploma and a Whole Lot More.” The release announced the new name change of the high school, and its partnership with San Diego City College. East Village High, a high school located in San Diego Unified School District, offers students a four-year high school diploma as well as up to two years of college credit — absolutely free.
Additionally, an on-line student recruitment brochure on behalf of Clairemont High School and the website design on behalf of Honorable Thomas P. Nugent for his mediation website, received third place honors behind big names such as the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego County Bar Association. For the Newsletter and Website categories, the judges took into account overall design as well as the copy and audience.
We couldn’t be more proud of our clients!
