This year the Kennett Consolidated School District was recognized by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) for its excellence in print media. The 2016 NSPRA Publications and Electronic Media Awards recognize outstanding education publications and marketing/informational materials (print and electronic), video/TV/radio programs, social media and websites.
School districts nationwide were invited to submit at least two editions of their district newsletter. According to NSPRA’s web site, entries were judged according to the size of the school district, so publications competed only against those from similar organizations. There were 965 entries in this year’s contest. The Kennett Consolidated School District was one of 147 school districts to receive the Award of Honorable Mention.
