International education organization honors SDSU Foundation's campaign celebration video

A video featuring two South Dakota State University students produced for the campaign announcement at the SDSU Foundation's 2013 Donor Celebration has been recognized by an international education association that represents nearly 4,000 universities worldwide.

The Foundation, working with Sioux Falls-based creative services agency Henkin Schultz, featured Alex Kunz and Noah Brown, both from Sioux Falls, in a rendition of "Kind and Generous" by the 10,000 Maniacs. The video was shown and the song performed live before an audience of 1,000 at Frost Arena. The event culminated with the announcement that SDSU’s campaign, It Starts with STATE: A Campaign for South Dakota State University, raised $255.7 million.

The Foundation was notified that the video was selected by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) as a Bronze award winner in the "short video" category.  A panel of experts selected the institution’s entry among 59 entries.

This year, 629 higher education institutions, independent schools and nonprofits from around the world submitted more than 3,000 entries in 100 categories for consideration in the Circle of Excellence awards program.

Judges gave 283 bronze, silver and gold awards. Thirteen institutions received the top prize of a grand gold award.

“We believe the video was an important way to reinforce the impact that private donors made through our historic comprehensive campaign, and it was made even more special to have SDSU students showcased in the video,” said Steve Erpenbach, President & CEO of the Foundation.

“The Foundation has enjoyed a great partnership with Henkin Schultz and we take pride in being in the same category as some very large and prestigious universities,” he said.

The other universities honored include Middlebury College (Vt.), Georgetown University (D.C.), Arizona State University, Brigham Young University (Utah), The University of Queensland (Australia) and The University of Sydney (Australia).

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education is one of the largest international associations of education institutions, serving more than 3,650 universities, colleges, schools and related organizations in more than 80 countries. CASE is the leading resource for professional development, information, and standards in the fields of alumni relations, communications, educational fundraising and marketing.
