SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (readMedia) – The Dordt College development and public relations/marketing departments received six awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District Six, including two gold, two silver, and two bronze awards.

The college's 10-day spring band and orchestra tour led to significant social media engagement, and the college was awarded a bronze for Best in Social Media. To give parents and others interested in the ensembles a closer look at what happens on a typical music tour, the department sent student photographer Dan Woudenberg along on the trip. Woudenberg captured moments from concerts, practices, and social times, then edited and posted them to Facebook that evening. 

Woudenberg, from Carefree, Arizona, is a sophomore majoring in digital media production.

Dordt College received gold awards in the categories of Individual In-House Publications and Visual Identity System, silver in Magazine Publishing Improvement and Excellence in Design, and bronze for Best in Social Media and Special Program Publications Packages.
