Handbooks can be color, gray, or black and white. 
Outstanding Publication for New Students or Family Members 
This award includes publications that are given out directly to new students and/or family members during the year or orientation program. Calendars or handouts or newsletters will be considered as long as they are directly associated with either new students and/or family members.
