CLASS Reunion Kudos Awards

We are happy to announce the 2014 CLASS Reunion Kudos Awards.
These awards are to applaud and acknowledge the success of our fellow
communicators in the publishing industry.

(Kudos means fame or glory, usually resulting from an important act or achievement. It is interesting to notice that in Greek
and in the Standard British English, Kudos is a singular noun. Inside the United States, however, it is often used in a plural form.)

Fees collected from the contest go to our Scholarship Fund.
