University's football programs honored with CoSIDA awardThe College Sports Information Directors of America recently honored the University for its football game programs produced during the 2000-01 season. CoSIDA presented the University with a Second-in-Nation award in its division during the organization’s convention held last month in San Diego, Calif.
CoSIDA presented 555 citations to 133 different institutions and conferences in 74 separate contests, which ranged from single-sport brochures and game programs to special publications and programs and conference publications. Most contests, except football, are divided into three divisions.
The number of awards varies from category to category, depending on the number of submissions, but no more than seven place winners are awarded in each division. This year, schools and conferences across the country submitted nearly 1,800 entries in all of the categories.
CoSIDA was established in 1955 to serve Sports Information Directors and others who promote college athletics. Its current membership numbers 1,900.
