Paragon Award for Excellence in Marketing

Red Deer College has been recognized for its excellence in marketing initiatives. RDC’s Marketing & Communications department recently received a bronze Paragon Award from the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR). 

This award was received for the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre/Centre des Jeux du Canada Gary W. Harris Case for Support. This document was created by Marketing & Communications in partnership with RDC’s Enterprise & Community Relations division as one of the tactics this team uses to inform prospective donors and sponsors about the College.

The NCMPR Paragon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in marketing and communications at community and technical colleges from across Canada, the United States and other countries. 
The awards are given each year, with judging conducted by industry experts.

This most recent award received by RDC’s Marketing & Communications department was presented last week at the annual NCMPR conference, held this year in Charleston, South Carolina. RDC is a proud member of NCMPR, and the Marketing & Communications team is honoured to have been selected for this award from among 247 colleges who submitted 1,800 entries in more than 50 categories.
