Media guides garner awards from NAIA-SIDA

Huntington, Ind.—Three Huntington University media guides recently received national honors from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics-Sports Information Directors Association for the 2007-2008 season.

For the fifth year in a row, a Forester media guide won best cover in the country with this year’s honors going to both men’s soccer and men’s basketball. Two of the guides also placed in the top 10 for content. The women’s basketball guide was fourth, and the men’s basketball guide was sixth in both basketball brochure divisions. This is the seventh time in as many years that Huntington University has received national recognition in the NAIA-SIDA Publications Contest.
