PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. -- Pulaski County Special School District is being recognized for District and school communication efforts in the 2022 National School Communication Awards contest. The contest, which includes three award programs, is held in conjunction with the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) annual conference.

PCSSD’s department of communications submitted four entries in two of the award programs. The Golden Achievement Award recognizes outstanding, strategic work in all aspects of school public relations, communications, marketing and engagement. PCSSD’s Teacher of the Year '' was one of just over 100 award-winning entries for this prestigious accomplishment. This is the second year in a row the District has received this recognition.

“It’s so exciting and refreshing to be celebrated for the hard work and dedication of my entire team,” said Jessica Duff, executive director of communications. “We are honored to receive the Golden Achievement Award for the second year in a row and be recognized among our peers of public relations professionals.”

In addition to the Golden Achievement Award, the District received three awards in the Publications and Digital Media Excellence Awards Program which recognizes outstanding education publication for its PCSSD Branding Website (internal), Mills University Studies High Branding Package, and the Live Winter Weather Q & A with THV11.

Entries submitted in the contest, including supporting materials, were for the time period including March 2021 - March 2022. Members of the District’s communications department will receive recognition for these achievements at the annual NSPRA conference in Chicago in July.
