KUSD earns Spectrum Awards of Excellence in school communications

The Kenosha Unified School District was recently honored by the Wisconsin School Public Relations Association (WSPRA) with four Spectrum Awards of Excellence for its work in school communications.

WSPRA presented the Spectrum Awards at its recent annual conference in Elkhart Lake, Wis. Kenosha Unified earned four Awards of Excellence for its 2016 Community Report, 2017-18 enrollment drive materials, Employee Spotlight feature videos and Bradford High School football feature video.

Spectrum Awards recognize high-quality public relations efforts produced by or on behalf of Wisconsin school districts. This year, this statewide competition honored 40 school districts with awards.

“Spectrum Award winners exemplify the very best communications work in school districts across the state,” said WSPRA President Sarah Heck. “The winners demonstrate the value of engaging stakeholders in order to build community support for Wisconsin’s public schools.”

WSPRA’s Spectrum Awards are judged by members of the Illinois School Public Relations Association (INSPRA) on a 30-point scale in six areas: goals and objectives, research and planning, execution and evaluation, results, language and design.

WSPRA, a state affiliate of the National School Public Relations Association, is a professional association representing schools, school districts, educational associations, consulting agencies and organizations. Its mission is to expand the capacity of its members to provide effective communication management for the purpose of strengthening educational opportunities for all students.
