2019 Lumiinary Awards

The Missouri Bar communications team was presented two Luminary Awards Sept. 27 for exceptional work at the 2019 National Association of Bar Executives Communications Workshop in Cleveland, Ohio. Each year, the National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) recognizes excellence in communications. The Luminary Awards program focuses on bar communications and marketing by honoring outstanding communications projects within the last year. Awards are given for regular publications, public relations/marketing/social media campaigns, authored articles, graphic design and special projects.

Team members Farrah Fite, media relations director; Hannah Kiddoo Frevert, communications coordinator/assistant editor of the Journal of The Missouri Bar; and Jessica Long, communications coordinator; were onsite to accept the awards.

The Missouri Bar’s graphic designwinning project was the 2019 Juror Appreciation Week poster. This poster was a collaborative effort between Fite, Frevert, and a contracted graphic designer.

The poster is an annual project of The Missouri Bar and Frevert had the idea to incorporate the currently popular superhero theme for 2019. Frevert then worked with the designer to outline and refine the design for use throughout Missouri. Once printed, hundreds of posters were distributed to courthouses, schools and law firms across the state.

The Missouri Bar’s winning project in the authored article category was published in the May-June 2019 issue of The Journal of The Missouri Bar. Frevert wrote “Learning, Serving, Leading: The Missouri Bar at 75, an article which was a deep dive into the wide-ranging history of the state’s unified bar.The article was accompanied by avisual timeline of the history of The Missouri Bar which was created by Long. One judge wrote, “Love the timeline and all of the photos. Great way to tell the history... and show why others should become involved.”

In 2014, The Missouri Bar was also recognized for their excellence in public relations for a campaign surrounding revisions to Missouri’s criminal code.  

Sebrina Barrett, executive director of The Missouri Bar, congratulated the teamon the national recognition.

“I continue to be inspired by the creativity of our media relations team, and their innovative ideas that enable us to inform our members and the citizens of Missouri about the many ways The Missouri Bar helps our members even better serve their clients and communities,” Barrett said.
