Northwest ISD’s communications and community relations team earned five awards from their national professional association, receiving honors in a range of media categories.

The team earned two awards of excellence – the top honor available – as well as one award of merit and two honorable mentions in the National School Public Relations Association’s Publications and Media Awards. This marks the fifth consecutive year Northwest ISD’s communications team has earned multiple honors from the NSPRA Publications and Media Awards.

Northwest ISD’s recently redesigned website took home an award of excellence for its design, and the district’s Northwest News newsletter took home an award of excellence in its category of electronic newsletters for external audiences. The website, overseen by Melissa Shawn, was one of just five in the nation to receive an award of excellence, while the newsletter, overseen by Anthony Tosie, was one of just 10 to receive an award of excellence in its category.

Rachel Bobbit’s Northwest ISD Bond 2017 video earned an award of merit, while a profile of an educator video she created earned honorable mention. Also earning honorable mention was the district’s Northwest Vision print newsletter, overseen by Emily Conklin.

More than 980 entries were submitted to NSPRA’s annual awards program this year, with 650 awards recipients.
