CoyotePR was selected for a PRSA Polaris or Capella award at the November 2019 Polaris awards. The award submissions were written and prepared by students in Comm243d PR Practica. The award winning actions were executed, planned and produced by students as part of their coursework serving client, Coyote Chronicle, in a branded event for them. The award will be in 'tactics-branding' for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize Speaker event with Nick Ut and Raul Roa, a mentee/mentor duo with Ut having taken the photograph that is credited for ending the Vietnam War. It is the first known award garnered by the efforts of the Dept. of Communication Studies. We congratulate the many students who worked on this effort!
