The Kannapolis City School System has received statewide recognition for excellence in communications.

Each year, the North Carolina School Public Relations Association (NCSPRA) honors the outstanding communications work of school districts with its annual Blue Ribbon Awards.

During NCSPRA's awards ceremony in Greensboro, Kannapolis City Schools earned three Blue Ribbon Awards. The district earned a Gold level award in social media engagement for its Friday Photo Galleries that are published each week. Kannapolis City Schools also received Silver and Bronze awards for outstanding publications and photography. Entries were judged by the Board of Directors of the Georgia School Public Relations Association. 

Superintendent Dr. Chip Buckwell accepted the awards along with Ellen Boyd, APR, Director of Community Relations for the district. Kannapolis City Schools was one of 35 school districts (out of 115 in NC) to receive recognition for outstanding communications.

NCSPRA President, Charlie Glazener, said the winning entries rivaled some of the best work of public relations practitioners in any field. “Blue Ribbon Awards are the highest honor in our organization, and they validate the superior work done by my colleagues this year,” Glazener said. “This roster of excellence is tangible evidence that NCSPRA's public relations professionals are among the nation’s finest and that they are producing cutting edge communications and products that support their schools and school systems.” 

Prior to the awards ceremony attendees heard a presentation from Keith Poston, Director of the Public School Forum. He outlined the top education issues facing North Carolina in 2017.

NCSPRA’s mission is to build support for public education through well-planned and responsible public relations. This year’s Blue Ribbon Awards were presented in Greensboro on January 27th.
