Three county vocational technical school districts were among the winners of the New Jersey School Public Relations Association (NJSPRA) 2015 School Communication Awards earlier this month.
More than 30 entries were submitted for the 2015 competition, which has grown in interest since the last competition in 2012. The competition doubled in size this year as New Jersey school districts dedicated more resources to communication with their stakeholder groups.
NJSPRA oversees the competition with the support of Rowan University Department of Public Relations and Advertising; Rowan faculty members served as judges for the awards.
Competitive event categories included website, social media, video, special interest publication, marketing, nd e-newsletter.
