Wake Forest wins top award for presidential debate

The University Advancement office at Wake Forest University has received recognition from its peer institutions in the Southeast for one of the university’s largest-ever institutional projects—the presidential debate held on campus last October.

The office’s debate entry received the Grand Award in the institutional projects category from District III of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The Grand Award is the highest recognition presented at the district level. The entry documented everything from planning, parking, and publicity to facilities and grounds preparation, technology, security and student involvement.

Wake Forest also won a Grand Award for graphic identity programs with its submission of debate-related materials including the logo, poster, magnet, signage and printed publications.

Wake Forest won several other awards in the CASE competition. The University Editor’s office, a division of University Advancement, won an Award of Excellence for its total publications program and an Award of Excellence in Photography for a photograph of Dr. Cecil Price that appeared in Wake Forest Magazine. Price is director of the Student Health Service at the university.

The Babcock Graduate School of Management won Merit Awards in the Media Relations Programs category and in the Publications Programs category.

The winning entries will be on display at the February CASE III conference in Atlanta.
