The National High School Sports Publication Awards (NHSSPA) recently released its annual award winners for 2010 and the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Desktop Publishing Department received one of the NHSSPA’s top honors for the second year in a row.
The IHSA’s Jackie Iverson and Kathy Topp were recognized for their work on the 2010 IHSA Girls Volleyball State Final Program, which received the NHSSPA’s highest honor, the Gold Award, in the Professionally Prepared Category.
The duo also received a Gold Award for their efforts on the 2009 IHSA Class 3A/4A Boys Basketball State Final program a year ago.
“The IHSA’s Desktop Publishing Department and the productions they output are second to none,” said IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman. “Jackie (Iverson) and Kathy (Topp) continue to do incredible work that add a key dynamic to the overall state final experience and help make our events memorable for the student-athletes, coaches, parents, students and fans.”
The 4th annual NHSSPA award program honored winners from across the country in 18 different categories, including programs and media guides prepared by high schools, state associations and other professional design groups.
