Congratulations! If you’re reading this, you may have already won. A cheesy line we’ve all heard before, but this time it’s true.

June and July were banner months for AAUW—not only did we wrap up a fabulous National Convention in San Diego, we were also honored by two major associations for our outstanding communications. And these awards would have never been possible without you, our readers, members, and supporters, and that makes you winners in our book.

For the third year in a row, the AAUW blog was recognized for its excellence by the Association Media and Publishing, receiving a silver Excel Award. But they didn’t stop there. We also won a bronze redesign Excel Award for the new and much-improved Mission and Action e-newsletter and two editorial awards for single-topic magazine issues. The Winter 2014 issue of Outlook, which focused on LGBT rights, and the Fall 2014 reproductive rights issue were awarded bronze and silver, respectively.

In addition to the publishing awards, the Direct Marketing Association of Washington gave AAUW a bronze and silver MAXI Award for our member note cards. Every year, generous and talented AAUW member artists donate their work to be used on note cards that are then sent to every member with a call to support AAUW’s mission and programs.

So thank you! Thank you for the time you spend commenting and sharing. Thank you for sending us Outlook content and then saving your magazines and displaying them proudly on your coffee table. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous art work with us. And thank you for continuing to believe in our mission and empower women and girls.

We on the national staff are proud to have earned these awards and your support—and we plan to continue to do so!
