Gallaudet University brought home awards in three medal categories in the 1998 Council for Advancement and Support of Education [CASE] Circle of Excellence competition.
At the top of the list was the 'History Through Deaf Eyes' information booklet, which won a solid gold in the 'Individual Institutional Relations Publications' category. Curated by Jack Gannon and coordinated by Project Director Jean Lindquist Bergey, the 'History Through Deaf Eyes' endeavor receives scholarly and technical support from the University. Containing text, graphics, and photographs chronicling the social history of deaf and hard of hearing Americans, the exhibit booklet offers an exciting and visually pleasing overview of the exhibit's scope and purpose.
Bagging a silver medal was Gallaudet's 'DPN 10 World Wide Web Site,' recognized as one of CASE's top 'World Wide Web Sites' of 1998. Constructed to celebrate and commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Deaf President Now Protest at Gallaudet, the site offers both a visually-stunning and historically relevant look at the protest. CASE judges praised 'the site's ability to capture the feeling of the DPN protests in a special and affecting way, even for those who were not participants, and thereby offer an exceptional model for a special events site.' Indeed, judges for 1998's CASE awards described new trends in World Wide Web design as 'an attempt to go beyond being merely interactive to use the Web to facilitate relationships--what one of the judges termed 'emotional interactivity.'' The 'DPN 10 World Wide Web Site' team includes Pre-College National Mission Programs Electronic Information Specialist Kenneth Kurlychek, and Roz Prickett and Katherine DeLorenzo, both of the University's Public Relations Office.
A spot on the podium was also awarded to the Office of Enrollment Services for the 'Spots Available' advertisement, which took home a bronze in CASE's 'Print Advertising' section. The ad was produced by OES Director Astrid Goodstein, Outreach Coordinator Debra Lawson and Rosanne Bangura, and designed by freelance artist Harriet Winner. The 'Spots Available' advertisement also was named a 'merit winner' by the Admissions Marketing Report, the national newspaper of admissions marketing.
