The Council for Advancement and Support of Education announced that Baylor School is among the winners of its 2018 Circle of Excellence awards.
The school's fundraising video, "Forever Forward: The Campaign for Baylor School," was selected for a gold award in the long video category. The winning entry was created to kick off the public phase of the school's historic $50 million campaign and was produced through a collaboration of Baylor School's communication office, Campbell & Company fundraising consultants, and Abiyoyo Productions.
The international awards program honors outstanding work in advancement services, alumni relations, communications, fundraising and marketing at colleges, universities, independent schools and affiliated nonprofits.
The program received 3,204 entries for consideration in nearly 100 categories from 676 higher education institutions, independent schools and affiliated organizations located worldwide.
Peer professionals at schools, colleges and universities as well as professionals from outside of education judged the entries and awarded nearly 350 awards to more than 190 institutions in 11 countries as follows: 104 bronze; 118 silver, 100 gold and 13 grand gold. In addition, CASE will recognize eight platinum winners.
Sue Cunningham, president and CEO of CASE, says 2018 was another exceptional year for the awards program and commended this year's recipients for their bold, innovative work that epitomizes the profession's best practices.
