The BOC recently was honored to receive a Paper Anvil Award
of Excellence for the AP Update by the Public Relations Society
of America (PRSA) Nebraska Chapter. The award was given in
the electronic publication category and came on the heels of the
AP Update’s redesign. A panel of public relations professionals
from the Nashville, Tennessee, chapter of PRSA judged the
entries. Judges evaluated entries on the merits of research,
planning, execution and evaluation.
