BOYCE, VA: Powhatan School won a 2018 Silver InspirED School Marketers Brilliance Award this week for its school blog in the only international competition that exclusively recognizes excellence in private and independent school marketing and communications. The Brilliance Awards are sponsored by InspirED School Marketers, a website that provides “brilliant ideas and brain food” for private school administrators around the globe.

The entries were judged by a panel of 60 marketing experts who are professionals in peer schools or businesses that specialize in school marketing. The entries were scored on creativity, impact, design, copy, photography and overall appeal.

Powhatan won the Silver Award in the Inbound Marketing / Single Blog Post category with a blog post entitled; Exploring the Five C’s. The blog post is a digital representation of the presentation Head of School, Mrs. Scarborough, gives to parents during the Pre-K and Kindergarten Assessment Days. The presentation is based on the the essential components of an excellent education as explained by Past President of NAIS, Pat Bassett. He identifies Five C’s – critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration and character, as the skills that will be in demand and will be rewarded in this century.
