NVUSD is Honored with National Golden Achievement Award for Communication

This summer, the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) announced the winners of the 2022 Golden Achievement Awards and 2022 Publications and Digital Media Excellence Awards. NSPRA named Napa Valley Unified School District as a winner of their “Golden Achievement Award” which recognizes outstanding, strategic work in all aspects of school public relations, communication, marketing and engagement. 

NVUSD was named for the district’s communication campaign, “Stronger Together, Better Than Ever.” The campaign was established in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic to provide clear and engaging communication through new and existing channels, which included a video series, virtual town-hall chats, as well as social media and digital communications. 

A public award ceremony took place during the NSPRA conference in Chicago in June. Superintendent Dr. Rosanna Mucetti and the communication team accepted the award. 

“As one of the first school districts in the state of California to open for in-person learning, NVUSD remained committed to frequent and effective communication to our school community of 16,500 students and 2,000 employees,” said Superintendent Dr. Rosanna Mucetti. “We have worked hard to provide frequent and open communications to our parents and community, and I am proud to accept this award on behalf of the district.”

NVUSD also participated in “listen and learn” round table discussions with conference attendees to share insights on its communication strategy approach.
