Endeavors won the top awards in two categories – for research magazines and for periodical staff writing for external audiences.
Earlier, the UNC General Alumni Association also received two awards in the 2006 district-level awards program sponsored by CASE. The GAA won a special merit award in overall alumni relations programs, and the Carolina Alumni Review won a special merit award for overall alumni magazines.
Life members of the GAA receive each issue of Endeavors as a membership benefit, mailed with the January/February, May/June and September/October issues of the Review. Annual GAA members and others can read Endeavors online.
