Video on WIN Academy to be featured at national convention
The Public Relations Department in the Socorro Independent School District has earned five publication and electronic media awards from the National School Public Relations Association for projects produced in the last year.

SISD Public Relations earned two 2016 NSPRA Awards of Excellence, the most among school districts in the region, for branding materials and a video produced in-house. The PR department won an Award of Excellence for a video depicting the success and impact of the district’s innovative WIN Academy. The WIN Academy, which launched last school year, gives extra support and resources to students to ensure all Team SISD children succeed. NSPRA will be featuring the WIN video at the association’s national convention this month in Chicago.

SISD won an Award of Excellence for branding materials for Purple Heart Elementary, the district’s newest elementary school. The PR team also won an Award of Merit for the SISD Realtor Fact Sheet, which was produced for the district’s annual meeting to update real estate professionals on the district’s boundaries, enrollment, programs and progress, and the “We are #TeamSISD” video, highlighting the district’s achievements and commitment to student success. The Honorable Mention was awarded for Team SISD’s #SISDin8 Twitter campaign, featuring SISD students who posted photos and thoughts about their last days as high school seniors.
