The Osage Way

School of the Osage won an “Award of Excellence” and received the only perfect score at the 2023 Missouri School Public Relations Association (MOSPRA) Awards Program for The Osage Way magazine. There were over sixty entries with school districts all across Missouri competing in the program.

As part of the 2023 The Missouri School Public Relations Association (MOSPRA) Awards Program, members are given the opportunity to have their work evaluated by public relations and communications professionals and measured against industry standards. Each submission in the program was judged by a minimum of two professionals in the field of public relations, communications, or marketing. 

MOSPRA President Derek Duncan, said: “The MOSPRA Communications Awards Program not only recognizes exemplary school public relations programs, but also provides valuable feedback from public relations professionals to help our members continue to improve their work. Congratulations to this year's honorees on their well-deserved recognition.”

The Osage Way magazine is a bi-annual mailer that is sent to district community members to bring information to their doorstep.  You can access previous electronic editions at
