The Wilkes University Marketing Communications Department has won three awards in the CASE District II Accolade Awards competition. Marketing Communications, in partnership with the Advancement Department, earned a Gold Award – the highest given in the competition – for the video Thank You, Science Building Donors. The video was developed for the “Achieving Our Destiny” Campaign supporting the Lawrence and Sally Cohen Science Center. Competition judges cited “Excellent production quality; animation, cinematography and audio work are outstanding. It captures a multitude of perspectives and holds the viewer's attention throughout.”
Wilkes also won two honorable mentions for print publications: one for the Presidents’ Report and another for an admissions yield piece mailed to accepted students. The publication profiles three young alumni and their families, emphasizing the value of the education they received at Wilkes.
The awards will be presented at the CASE District II conference from March 3-5 in Pittsburgh. CASE District II covers the largest area in the organization, encompassing colleges, universities and independent schools from New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Ontario, West Virginia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
