WVU Tech wins PRSA Crystal Awards in statewide competition

MONTGOMERY – The Office of Relations & Communications at West Virginia University Institute of Technology (WVU Tech) received four Crystal Awards and one Honorable Mention Award at the Public Relations Society of American (PRSA) West Virginia awards banquet held at Edgewood Country Club in Charleston on June 19.

The university received Crystal Awards for its “Integrated Marketing Communications Recruitment Campaign” in the Integrated Communications campaign category and their “Recipe for Success” submission in the Holiday Card project category. The Relations & Communications team included Katrina Baker, Tara Hines, Adrienne King, Bok Kwee Toh, Christina Williams and student Angel Thompson.

WVU Tech was also awarded two Crystal Awards in the student category for its “Homecoming Invitation” and Light Up Old Main Poster submissions, and an honorable mention for its “Homecoming Poster” – all created by WVU Tech alumna Monika Becker. A May 2013 graduate, Becker worked as a student intern in the WVU Tech Office of Relations & Communications during her senior year developing multiple promotional campaigns.

Becker received special recognition from the PRSA WV organization for her “Light Up Old Main Poster” submission, which was the only submission in the state this year – campaign and project, professional and student – to receive a perfect score from the judging panel. PRSA WV noted, “That’s a tribute to her graphics training, to her mentors in the Office of Relations & Communications, and to her talent.”
