Silver and Blue Cover The award-winning Fall 2010 cover of Nevada Silver and Blue magazine was created by Andrew Nixon and Magazine Art Director and ’97 journalism alumnus Patrick McFarland.

Nevada Silver & Blue, the magazine of the University of Nevada, Reno, won four awards, a Gold and three Silvers, in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Awards of Excellence.

"Nevada Silver & Blue is a valued part of Nevada's long-standing traditions," said John Carothers, vice president of Development and Alumni Relations and executive editor of Nevada Silver & Blue. "We are very pleased to have been recognized by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education."

The magazine received a Gold for its "Family Tree Challenge" department in the Alumni Relations Programs: Programming for Special Constituencies category, and three Silvers for the magazine's Fall 2010 Campus Map Illustration: two in the Excellence in Design category - for both Illustrations and Posters - and one in Individual Institutional Relations and Alumni Relations Publications: Campus Maps.

"We introduced the Family Tree Challenge in 2006 to foster connections between the many alumni whose families have seen generations of Nevada graduates," Carothers said. "The two-page spread is very popular with our alumni-we have a long waiting list. I am grateful for the many people in my division and across campus whose hard work makes Nevada Silver & Blue a success."

The latest issue of Nevada Silver & Blue is available. The Spring 2011 issue will publish in late April.
