The University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute (WRI) won a communications award in an international competition sponsored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, an association that shares strategies and tactics to engage alumni, donors, prospective students, parents, government officials, community leaders and those in the private sector to support education.
An invitation designed by Yael Gen for an event commemorating Groundwater Awareness Week won a bronze award. Judges said the creative team “clearly thought about their various audiences when they were producing this highly effective piece. This is a modern, striking design that is simplistic, but not simple.”
WRI’ sister organization, Sea Grant, also won two awards. The podcast series Introduced, produced by Bonnie Willison and student Sydney Widell about aquatic invasive species, won a gold award and the 2018-20 Sea Grant biennial report won a bronze award. The report was designed by Yael Gen, edited by Elizabeth White and written by Moira Harrington.
