Media Award - 2020

Katie McKy - Reporter

Each year the Boards Association recognizes print, audio, and visual media efforts about Wisconsin Technical Colleges that meet the following four criteria:

  • The nomination portrays today’s technical college learning environment positively, with originality and creativity;
  • It portrays the benefits of technical college education on individuals and their communities;
  • It reports positively about the technical college's service and contributes to a better public understanding of the college’s mission; and, finally,
  • It thoroughly covers the subject matter in a stimulating and clear fashion.

We were honored to review the nominations for several really extraordinary submissions this year.

2020 Media Award Winner: Katie McKy - Reporter, Chippewa Valley Business Report.

Katie McKy's report, Automation Isn't Automatic was published July 23rd, 2019. It features CVTC’s Automation Engineering Department, a two-year associate degree program.
