Professors Glen Bach and David Bieloh of the CWU Art Department were selected for Gold Awards in the 2015 Summit SCA (Summit Creative Awards) International Competition. Since 1994, this international advertising competition has offered participants, especially from small and medium-sized agencies, a unique opportunity to showcase their talents alongside similarly positioned agencies, and to have their work judged by experts in the advertising field. It is not tied to any advertiser, magazine, trade association, ad club or other outside influence, and selection is done through a blind peer-review process.

This year, the competition received over 5,000 entries from over 24 countries, in a variety of categories covering print, online, media, marketing, and promotion design materials.  There are four levels of award (Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Best of Show), and the Gold Awards received by Bieloh and Bach are awarded only one per category.  Bieloh won this year for his book cover design for Quench Your Thirst With Salt by Nicole Walker (Zone 3 Press) and Bach won for his poster design Plant Sale for The Roy and Marjorie Bach Kittitas County Memorial Plant Sale.  For more information on the Summit Creative Awards, see

Over 300 high school students attended CWU’s 13th annual World Languages Day, held Friday, May 13, on the CWU campus. Participating high schoolers from all over the region enjoyed workshops ranging from Folk Dances and Russian Music to American Sign Languages Poetry and French theater.

CWU alum Benjamin Rooney/Stürmer ('05) offered a compelling keynote talk about his time studying abroad in Japan and the subsequent ten years he spent in Germany attending graduate school and working as a computer programmer. Stürmer emphasized the importance of learning additional languages and cultures and illustrated how such studies can have impact in profound and satisfying ways. Visiting students also had opportunities to meet with faculty from the World Languages Department as well as many current CWU students, all of whom participated and gave generously of their time performing, answering questions, and serving as guides. It was a wonderful day!
