The Wentzville and Francis Howell school districts recently received awards from the Missouri School Public Relations Association [MOSPRA] for excellence in communication.
The MOSPRA Communications Awards Program annually provides members the opportunity to have their work evaluated by PR professionals and measured against industry standards.
The Wentzville School District took home first place in the Social Media category for its Facebook page, which judges said went “above and beyond.”
The district also received two Awards of Merit – one for the Proposition E 2018 communication campaign in the Golden Achievement category, and another for a video about the district’s annual Back to School Fair in the Video category.

The District’s websites received an Award of Merit for their layout, content and navigation.
In the Golden Achievement category, the District’s Future Focused strategic planning process and communications received an Award of Commendation for an “excellent and thorough plan” with “strong community engagement.”
