Excellence in school communications recognized in KSBA/KYSPRA annual OASIS public information awards program

            KSBA and the Kentucky School Public Relations Association recently honored school communications staff and administrators from districts across the Commonwealth as recipients in the 2012 OASIS (Outstanding Achievement in School Information Services) Professional Development Program.

In this year’s OASIS program, the Sweepstakes Award winners were Jefferson County, Kenton County, Nelson County and Paducah Independent.  Sweepstakes Awards are based on a total set of judges’ scores for three separate OASIS entries that cover different elements of communications programs.
