The Grinnell Magazine wins international award
The College's flagship publication, The Grinnell Magazine, was recently honored by The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) for an article written by a Grinnell alumna.
The Grinnell Magazine won a silver medal in CASE's 2008 Circle of Excellence international awards program in the "Best Articles of the Year" category. "Campus Mystery," written by Sarah Aswell '04, was published in the winter 2007 issue of the magazine. The article tells the story of strange, anonymous letters sent to Grinnell students over a number of years and Aswell's own pursuit to find the author known only as "the duclod man."
The Grinnell Magazine is published by Grinnell's Office of College and Alumni Relations and produced by the College's communication team led by Kate Worster, director of communication. Jackie Hartling Stolze is the editor of The Grinnell Magazine, and Jim Powers, the College's publication director, is the magazine's art director.
"This is the first international CASE award for The Grinnell Magazine," Worster said. "We are especially pleased that CASE recognized the writing and editorial quality of the magazine among other well-known competitors." Other top winners in the Best Article category included alumni publications from Brown University, Columbia, Notre Dame, Penn State, Stanford, and the University of Chicago.
CASE is the largest international association of educational institutions, serving more than 3,300 universities, colleges, schools and related organizations in 54 countries. The international Circle of Excellence awards recognize outstanding work in communications and marketing, alumni relations, advancement services, and fundraising as judged by peer professionals.
