The National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) selected The 2009 Linfield College Scoreboard Video as the Silver Medalist in the Group III Video Board Segment for 2009-10 (see bottom of page). The winners were presented their awards during NACMA's 19th Annual Convention, June 22-25 in Anaheim, Calif.
Initiated in 2003, the NACMA Awards program honors outstanding achievement in marketing and promotions. Awards are presented in 13 categories, with each category divided into three groups based upon school size and conference affiliations. More than 650 entries were received for the 2009-10 year.
For your information the Group I are major Division I conferences, Group II are mid-major Division I conferences, and Group III are all Division II, DIII's and NAIA schools. Last year we took the Bronze for the 2008 Scorebaord Video so it was pretty cool in capturing the Silver this year and see our video slugging it out with Division II powers NW Missouri State and Grand Valley State.
Linfield SID, Kelly Bird, submitted Catdomealumni.com's scoreboard videos the past two years and was on hand to pick up the hardware while attending the NACMA's 18th Annual Convention.
Wildcat11 has been hard at work in the lab (the floor of the living room) trying to come up with ideas for the 2010 version and thoughts are starting to slowly simmer. Like our Linfield Wildcats, WC11 is aiming for the number one spot this season. Go 'Cats!
