Y12_red_LogoOAK RIDGE – The Y-12 National Security Complex received 10 awards from the Volunteer Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, including two Awards of Excellence, the chapter’s highest honor.

Y-12’s monthly newsletter, The Y-12 Times, received an Award of Excellence for the second year in a row, and the Web Communications department received an Award of Excellence for the redesigned Y-12 public website (http://www.y12.doe.gov/) and new social media sites. The Publishing Communications department also won five Awards of Quality and two Awards of Merit, and Web Communications also won an Award of Merit for the Y-12 History website (http://www.y12.doe.gov/about/history/).

The Society for Technical Communications selected the Y-12 People booklet for an Award of Excellence at its
International Summit Awards competition. The book provides an overview of programs at Y-12 such as internships, veterans-to-work efforts, a new health initiative and others that benefit employees and aim to attract the workforce of the future. An award of Excellence consistently meets high standards in all areas and clearly demonstrates an exceptional understanding of technical communication principles.

The Y-12 Times and The Y-12 Report received awards of merit at the international STC competition. A publication receiving a merit award consistently meets high standards in most areas, and applies technical communications principles in a highly proficient manner. In March, the Times won Best of Show and Distinguished awards in the competition held by STC’s Middle and East Tennessee chapters.

The winning entries were produced by the writers, editors, photographers, designers, web developers and electronic publishers in Y-12’s Communications Services division. Y-12’s Public Affairs office collaborated on several winning entries as well.
