For the tenth consecutive year, the Jefferson College Marketing and Public Relations Department has been recognized for its creative and professional excellence by the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR). The department won eight “Medallion of Excellence” Awards during the NCMPR District 5 awards ceremony, which is the most by any community college in Missouri.
Jefferson College earned gold in six categories including Annual Report, Flyer, Print Wildcard, E-Newsletter, E-Card, and TV/Video Paid Advertisement. Certificates for bronze were awarded in Logo Design and Social Media or Online Marketing Campaign.

The regional Medallion Awards recognize outstanding achievement in communication at community and technical colleges in District 5 (Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, the Canadian province of Manitoba, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands). It is the only competition of its kind that honors excellence among marketing and public relations professionals exclusively at two-year colleges.
