Words of Wisdom from a Fellow Winter Graduate

Sixteen years ago next month, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a shiny journalism degree. It didn’t involve nearly as much of the pomp and circumstance as a spring commencement – likely because it was so cold that our eyelashes were freezing.

There definitely were pros and cons to graduating in the winter rather than the spring, so if you’re about to enter the post-college world yourself, keep a few things in mind. ...

Call for Entries: Minnesota PRSA 39th Annual Classics Awards

Entries for the 39th Annual Minnesota PRSA Classics Awards —the largest and most prestigious awards program in the state —are now being accepted. In an effort to give you every opportunity to prepare entries in a way that meets your high standards, we will again be offering two deadlines:
  • Early Entry Deadline (discounted entry fee): Sunday, December 11, 2016 at Noon (CST)
  • Final Entry Deadline: Thursday, December 22, 2016 at Noon (CST)
Each entry must be submitted according to the "How To Enter" instructions or it will be disqualified with no refund.

About the Awards
The Classics Awards are an opportunity for your work in marketing communications field to be recognized by the largest public relations professional organization in Minnesota. Like previous years, the 2017 Classics are divided into two categories: Elements and Programs.  Elements Awards recognize outstanding individual components or tactics, while Programs Awards honor the best overall public relations campaigns. However, many of our categories are new and improved this year to be more inclusive and representative of a variety of entrants, including small agencies, organizations and freelancers. Finalists and winners will be revealed at the Classics Banquet next spring, following the judging of the Classics entries.

The majority of an entry’s work must have been completed between Oct. 1, 2015 and Nov. 30, 2016. Programs tend to have a better chance of winning when they are near completion and can be better evaluated against their initial objectives. The PRSA Classics Awards competition is not limited to PRSA members. Entries are encouraged from all communication professionals in Minnesota.
Online Entry Process
All 2017 Classics Awards entries must be submitted using the online entry system.  Only entries submitted through this system will be accepted. No hard copy award entries will be allowed. For more details about the electronic entry process and requirements, read the "How to Enter" instructions on the Classics website.

Additional information about the entry preparation process can be found in the Classics Frequently Asked Questions document.
