Caltech Publications Earn Regional CASE Awards

The regional district of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has recognized publications and posters made by Caltech with six Awards of Excellence—two gold, two silver, and two bronze medals.

CASE is a professional association that serves educational institutions and the people who work on their behalf in areas such as alumni relations, communications, development, and marketing.

Every year, CASE District VII, which represents the western region of the United States, including Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, Northern Mariana Islands, and Utah, hosts its Awards of Excellence program to highlight and recognize the field's best practices.

This year, a panel of 75 peer judges reviewed more than 500 entries and ultimately recognized 195 bronze, silver, and gold medal winners.

The judges awarded two gold medals to magazines put out by Caltech. In the category of annual magazines, the latest issue of ENGenious, a magazine created and published by the Communications Office of the Division of Engineering and Applied Science, earned a gold. And Engineering & Science, a quarterly magazine produced by Caltech's Office of Strategic Communications, also won first prize among general-interest magazines in its circulation class.

In the design category, a series of posters created by the Caltech Alumni Association for the 2015 Reunion Weekend and Seminar Day earned a silver medal.

Two videos developed to share research findings were honored in the news and research videos category. "Next Generation of Neuroprosthetics: Science Explained," created by Caltech's Academic Media Technologies, earned a silver medal, while "The Science of Healthy Eating," made by the Office of Strategic Communications, won bronze.

And finally, the Institute's 2014 annual report, titled It Starts Here, won a bronze medal in the Publications: Institutional Relations category.
