Junior Achievement of Kansas Receives Bronze Quill Award
Topeka, KS – Junior Achievement of Kansas received a Bronze Quill Award of Merit for the annual Kansas College and Career Guide publication on Saturday February 29 at the annual ADDY and Bronze Quill Awards ceremony in Mayetta.
The Bronze Quill Award recognizes communications excellence within the Topeka chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). Applications were evaluated by an out-of-state selection committee and awards were selected based on the entrant's ability to meet business objectives, stay within budget and meet a business need as well as show sustained success.
"Receiving the Bronze Quill is a great honor for JA, but also pushes us to make improvements to the guide and expand its availability for students in need. We're excited to move forward with our 2020-2021 edition," said Ashley Charest, President.
