MN PRSA Logo Final Design

Sponsored by the Minnesota chapter of PRSA, this year’s Minnesota PRSA Classics Awards honor the best in the public relations field. In addition, area college students are encouraged to showcase their work by entering the 12th annual PRSA Student Classics.

Since 1978, the Minnesota PRSA Classics Awards have recognized hundreds of organizations for excellence in public relations. The Classics are presented annually to public relations practitioners who, in the judgment of their peers, have successfully addressed a communications challenge with exemplary professional skill, creativity and resourcefulness.

NEW: The 2013 Classics Awards submission process is now entirely online. You will need to electronically submit supporting materials, as outlined in the “How to Enter” instructions. You will not be submitting a printed binder as part of your entry.

ELIGIBILITY

The majority of an entry’s work must have been completed between Oct. 1, 2012, and Nov. 30, 2013. Programs tend to have a better chance of winning near their completion when evaluation against initial objectives can be better determined.
