St. Kate's magazine garners three awards at MMPA

SCAN, the magazine of St. Catherine University, earned one gold and two bronze awards at the Minnesota Magazine and Publishing Association (MMPA) awards.

The event, sponsored annually by the MMPA, honors design, writing and overall excellence in all types of magazines throughout Minnesota. SCAN has earned multiple awards for the past three years.

At this year's event, held Nov. 3, 2011, SCAN Art Director Jessica Gallo was honored with a gold award for feature design and a bronze award for best spread or single-page design. In addition, SCAN earned a bronze for "regular column" for its regular feature, "St. Kate's Q&A."

The gold award for feature design went to "An Eye on Women," a feature story by staff writer and editor Pauline Oo that ran in October 2010. Gallo asked students to draw body portraits of women; contributors were Emily Dewey '13, Grace Dupre '11 and Ashley Murray '11.

The bronze award for best column went to three "St. Kate's Q&A's": an interview with Dr. Amy Kelly by Director of Marketing and Communications Amy Gage; a portrait of Art and Art History Professor Pat Olson by freelance writer Judy Arginteanu; and an interview with Chris Jacobs MLIS '96, a librarian at 3M Co. and an adjunct professor in St. Kate's Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program. That piece was written by current MLIS student and former SCAN editor Tracy Baumann.

Finally, a bronze award for a single-page or spread design went to Art Director Jessica Gallo for "Community Voices," an October 2010 piece by staff writer Pauline Oo about the St. Catherine Choral Society.

SCAN is produced every October, February and June by the Office of Marketing and Communications in collaboration with Alumnae Relations.
