Four Districts Awarded a 2022 NSPRA Gold Medallion

The National School Public Relations Association's Gold Medallion Awards program is the only national awards competition that recognizes superior educational public relations programs and campaigns grounded in strategic communication best practices. This year, four Gold Medallion winners were selected from among 64 entries submitted by communication professionals from school districts across the United States. The four winning school districts and their communicators will be celebrated during the NSPRA 2022 National Seminar in July.

Entries were submitted in six categories, but only four of those categories had a winner. Congratulations to the following school districts and their communications staff on earning a 2022 NSPRA Gold Medallion:

Their work truly reflects the best in school public relations, and I am so proud of their commitment to best practices," said NSPRA Executive Director Barbara M. Hunter, APR.
