2013 Silver Quill Award Winners

The IABC Pacific Plains Region is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2012 Silver Quill Awards, which honor excellence in organizational communication.

The competition invites participation from communicators throughout the Pacific Plains Region, encompassing 19 states from Wisconsin to Hawaii and from Arizona to North Dakota. Seasoned communicators from IABC Kansas City evaluated communication entries for their strategy, effectiveness and creativity.

Make your mark! Silver Quill Awards honor communicators who have achieved this by:

  • Setting and meeting objectives that delivered valuable, measurable results to the organization.
  • Using strategic thinking, creativity, ingenuity or whatever it took to get the job done.
  • Measuring the outcomes to demonstrate success.

Congratulations to All the 2013 Silver Quill Award Winners –
You’ve Made Your Mark!
