This week, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education announced its 2021 Circle of Excellence Awards winners and Stockholm International School has been awarded a bronze medal for the House System Branding Project.
These peer-selected and adjudicated awards honor institutions worldwide whose talented staff have advanced their organizations through their resourcefulness and ingenuity.
“This year’s CASE Circle of Excellence Awards highlight the creative, nimble, and innovative approaches our members bring to championing the success of their institutions,” says CASE President and CEO Sue Cunningham.
“Advancing education has never been more important, and the Circle of Excellence Awards celebrate the innovative work that has contributed to that vital societal outcome. This year, CASE member schools, colleges, and universities across the CASE global membership were faced with challenges that have never been seen before, and advancement professionals demonstrated their skills and sensitivity as they created inspiring and important work to engage their communities in entirely new ways.”
In 2021, CASE received almost 3,000 entries from 27 countries. Those entries came from 530 institutions for consideration across 100 categories. SIS shared the win in our category with some impressive institutions such as Princeton, University of Virginia, Brown University and Syracuse University.”I am so proud of the team for making this project a big success. Our collaboration with graphic designer Beth Elzer has given SIS a strong visual identity and cohesive branding that reflects our wonderful school and we were very excited to work with her on the SIS Houses” says Emma Jones, Advancement Director. “It’s wonderful to have our advancement efforts recognised in this way internationally.”
