Tweet, Tweet! Did You Hear SNA Received Two Gold EXCEL Awards?

April 13, 2012 – A little bird recently delivered good news to SNA that it was recognized by Association Media & Publishing’s EXCEL Awards program with not one, but two prestigious awards. SNA’s flagship publication, School Nutrition, and the 2011 “Connect in Nashville” Annual National Conference (ANC) campaign were among the more than 1,000 entries submitted to the program this year—and both were honored with the highest award in their category, Gold!

School Nutrition received a Gold Award in the “Magazines: Feature Writing, circulation between 50,001-100,000” category for the June/July 2011 article, “The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship.” This article, written by School Nutrition editor Patricia Fitzgerald, provides simple steps for turning school nutrition critics into bona fide champions.

Likewise, SNA received a Gold Award in the “Promotional Publications: Convention Marketing Campaign” category for the ANC 2011 “Connect in Nashville” campaign, which included everything from the Program Preview and Program Guide pieces to the conference web presence, postcards, advertisements and more. These promotional materials helped to generate interest and enthusiasm for the event, which was held last July and had the second-highest ANC attendance in the Association’s history!
