Shelly Stump, IMC professor and director of advising for online programs, will travel to New York City this Friday, March 23rd, to be a national judge for the Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) Silver Anvil Awards competition.
“The Silver Anvil, symbolizing the forging of public opinion, is awarded annually to organizations that have successfully addressed a contemporary issue with exemplary professional skill, creativity and resourcefulness,” PRSA states on their website. “The public relations profession’s most prestigious honor, the Silver Anvil Award acknowledges the very highest level of achievement and is the established icon of the “best of the best” public relations practices.”
Stump and other judges from around the country will review hundreds of entries in multiple categories. This will be Stump’s second year judging. She teaches IMC 618 (PR Concepts & Strategy) and IMC 628 (Applied Public Relations).
