Part of our service includes a recognition program, SNO Distinguished Sites, aimed at helping our customers improve their overall websites. This 5x8 postcard will be used to explain the program to our customers. We will hand these out at tradeshows.

You’ve got an awesome student news website. We know. It looks good and your stories and photos are on point. We could tell you “bravo” all day, but you can’t show off “bravo,” so why not become a SNO Distinguished Site? Distinguished Sites are award winners: online scholastic and collegiate newspapers that have demonstrated mastery over best practices in modern journalism. And your site could be one, too.
Distinguished Sites is an award program comprised of six badges that address different aspects of online journalism. Earn all six badges and you, my friend, have got a SNO Distinguished Site. The best part? The habits staff build while earning badges have a way of sticking, so excellence can be maintained even as staff evolve and change. Pretty cool.
Flip this card over for descriptions of each badge, or visit customers.snosites.com/recognition-program to see all the nitty-gritty details and get started.
