Monday, July 9th, 2018

Work produced by the Drake School of Journalism and Mass Communication public relations seniors in spring 2017 recently won a 2018 Clarion Award in the national Association for Women in Communications contest. 

According to the AWC website, “The Clarions — named for the medieval trumpet known for its clarity — symbolize excellence in clear, concise communications. Clarion recipients represent media companies large and small, leading corporations, small businesses, and nonprofit associations and institutions.”

The 2017 PR senior capstone client was Des Moines’ Young Women’s Resource Center. The Vector Strategies team that produced the award-winning campaign was 2017 SJMC graduates Ashley Hawkins, Sarah Mattes, Reed Fischer, Nick Frandsen, Megan Johns and Kristen Carver.
