PR students win national honors

Drake student public relations work has won a professional category in the national Association for Women in Communications 2017 Clarion Awards contest.

PR students’ 2016 senior capstone campaign to promote the community of Manning, Iowa, beat professional PR entries to win the Community Relations category.  The Manning work also won the student PR campaign category. Work that a public relations writing class did for community client Easter Seals also won an award.

The AWC reported that the contest attracted hundreds of submissions. Three of the five Drake entries won. The awards will be presented at the national AWC conference in Dallas in September.
