CASE V Awards
CASE V members work hard promoting institutional advancement—and they deserve recognition. CASE V bestows a number of awards each year at the district's annual meeting. You're welcome to nominate deserving colleagues, or to submit your own work for recognition in the Pride of CASE V or the CASE Platinum Awards.
Pride of CASE V
CASE District V invites you to submit your best work to the Pride of CASE V Awards program. There are dozens of categories covering all of the advancement disciplines and activities.
CASE Platinum Awards
Enter locally. Compete globally.
Platinum Awards judging takes place in two parts—like a tournament. Enter your best work to be judged first at the district level. Up to two finalists in each category from each district and region then automatically advance to be judged by a global panel in a second round to determine which entries deserve the coveted Platinum Award.
Platinum Award District Finalists
Congratulations to these District V members who were recognized as Platinum Award Finalists. Finalists from each CASE District and Region are then evaluated by a global judging panel to determine the one Platinum Award winner in each category. The Platinum Award winners will be announced in June 2021.
