- School: Chattahoochee Technical College
- Award: National Council for Marketing and Public Relations Awards
Chattahoochee Technical College’s Department of External Affairs brought home six awards for their efforts over the past year. National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) District 2 awarded CTC with six of its prestigious honors for communications and marketing.
A reported 426 entries were judged from the more than 50 community and technical college’s participating in this year’s competition. The college won two gold, two silver and two bronze awards at the annual conference in Atlanta this October.
Among its gold winning entries were the college’s promotional video and its campaign for a special event – the opening of the college’s eighth campus. Silver winners included the college’s recently redesigned website and its recruitment campaign that encouraged high school students to consider dual enrollment options at CTC. Bronze winners were a recruitment campaign to encourage prospective students to apply by July and a media success story to highlight some of the college’s successful programs.
“We are thrilled with the recognition,” said Chattahoochee Technical College Vice President of External Affairs Jennifer Nelson. “The team works hard to put together solid, dynamic, and effective messages that can be delivered through a variety of mediums. To hear from our peers that we are doing a good job is a great honor.”
