The award ceremony was held Saturday, March 2, at the annual International IBS Conference in New York City at the Hotel Pennsylvania.
Students Joey Awtry, from Garner, Iowa, and Josh Porcher, from McKinney, Texas, won first place in the Best Public Service Announcement category for their public service announcement for the Siouxland Humane Society. There were four Morningside students who were finalists for awards.
