EASTCONN Where Learning Comes to Life

Colchester & EASTCONN Win CABE Awards


Every year, the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) acknowledges schools’ efforts to communicate effectively with students, parents and communities about the great work being accomplished in their schools. The annual CABE communications contest, which is open to both private and public schools, draws hundreds of entries statewide. 

This year, among districts in the Under-2000 category from the EASTCONN region, the 42nd annual CABE Awards of Excellence for Educational Communications contest acknowledged Colchester Public Schools with an Honorable Mention in the newsletter category for their staff newsletter “Innovation Nation!” Congratulations!

In the Under-2000 category, CABE honored EASTCONN with four First-Place awards and two Honorable Mentions. First-Place awards went to EASTCONN’s 2016-2017 Annual Board Update; its Mobile STEM Laboratory brochure; a communications plan on behalf of the EASTCONN Arts at the Capitol Theater magnet high school; and the 2016-2017 “Welcome Back” PowerPoint for the EASTCONN Executive Board. Honorable Mentions went to EASTCONN’s website and its 2017-2018 pop-up calendar.
