The online offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity received two first-place awards: One for Best in Class/Independent Website and another for personal essay.

The awards were announced April 20 at the annual ACP convention in Chicago. The ACP, founded in 1916, is the oldest interdenominational religious press association in North America and its membership comprises newspapers, newsletters, magazines, journals, news services and Web sites.

In the organization’s Best of Class awards, the Faith & Leadership staff received an Award of Excellence for work done in 2017.

The essay “Push too hard and the flame goes out” also received an Award of Excellence, in the category of personal experience (short format). It was written by Sue DiMaggio, a student in the Faith & Leadership course, How to Tell Your Story: Writing the Personal Essay, and edited by Faith & Leadership Associate Editor Bob Wells.

Faith & Leadership received two awards of merit (second place), for News & Ideas, a weekday newsletter with stories of interest to Christian leaders; and for How should Christian leaders respond to gun violence?, a collection of pieces responding to recent news events.
