Schuylerville Central School District's website has captured an award of honor in the New York State School Public Relations Association's (NYSPRA) 33rd Annual Communications Contest.

This is the third year in a row the Schuylerville website has been honored with this prestigious award. Traffic to the site has steadily increased over the last few years, with 530,000 visits (including 133,377 “unique visitors”) since the site was redesigned in January 2009.

The district also received an award of merit in the special purpose publications category for its district brochure and another award of merit in the photography category. The winning photo was used on the district website and published in the district brochure.

NYSPRA's communications contest continues to be one of the largest of its kind in the nation. With more than 300 entries in 14 categories from across New York State, the 2012 contest was a closely drawn competition.

Award-winning recipients in NYSPRA’s 33rd Annual Communications Awards will be honored on October 22, 2012 at the annual NYSPRA Awards Luncheon held in conjunction with the 2012 New York State School Boards Association Convention in Rochester, NY.

NYSPRA is a chapter of the National School Public Relations Association. As a statewide group of professional school communicators, members are committed to the development and dissemination of communications designed to engage parents, staff, community residents, partners in education and other stakeholders.

The statewide awards provide an opportunity for recognition of the outstanding work performed by school communication professionals who support student achievement and school improvement initiatives through effective communications.
