The competition was fierce in the first annual InspirED School Marketers Brilliance Awards for excellence in PK12 private school marketing and communications. The panel of 10 judges was blown away with the quality and creativity of the entries, making some decisions difficult and finalists just a few points apart. Both small schools and large were winners and many agencies won on behalf of their clients, showing how many of you are at the top of your game in school MarCom.
InspirED hopes these examples of outstanding independent school marketing and communications inspire others, and invite everyone to enter the expanded 2017 Brilliance Awards in October.
