Atlanta, Ga. - StudentBridge, Inc., leading provider of student engagement & conversion solutions for colleges and universities, has been honored with two silver 2017 Davey Awards for the Virtual Campus Tour project they recently completed on behalf of the United States Air Force Academy.
"Winning not one, but two Davey Awards is an honor," said Jonathan Clues, StudentBridge, Inc. Founder and CEO. "It is a huge credit to the fantastic work that our team does, as well as the progressive thinking of our partner in this project, the Unites States Air Force Academy. I couldn't be more proud of this project, and it is a great honor to be once again recognized by the Davey Awards for our industry leading work."
The United States Air Force Academy Virtual Tour developed by StudentBridge, Inc., won honors in both the "Content - Video" category and the "Branded Entertainment - Series" category. The Virtual Tour provides an in-depth look at the Academy's campus the admissions process, academic information, as well as day-to-day “cadet life”.
The design has been hailed for its use of photography and videography, easy navigation, and its consistent application of the United States Air Force Academy's distinct branding and “voice”.
