Champy awards

PLATTSBURGH —The SUNY Plattsburgh Collegiate Chapter of the American Marketing Association is sponsoring the 27th Champy Advertising Awards competition.

The purpose is to recognize the high level of creativity demonstrated by local advertisers. This year the awards will be given in five categories: radio, television/video, electronic/web, print (newspaper and magazine) and a miscellaneous category, which includes brochures, direct-mail packages, menus, outdoor and other collateral material.

The competition is open to all advertisers in the North Country (Northern New York and Vermont) and is being chaired this year by Marketing major Caitlin M. Buser. Contest organizers remind advertisers that all contest submissions must have run in the media for the first time between Jan. 1, 2012, and Dec. 31, 2012. In addition, ads must have been created and developed locally, not supplied by a manufacturer or other supplier from outside the area.

There are no limitations on the number of entries per advertiser, advertising agency or advertising medium, but each ad should be accompanied by a separate entry form and an entry fee of $10.

Students trained in advertising and marketing will judge all entries. The winners for each category will be announced at the Marketing Association’s year-end banquet to be held May 9. Requests for entry forms or any questions should be addressed to Buser at or Dr. Nancy Church, 564-4169, or

Certifications earned

SARANAC LAKE — Five physician assistants on the Adirondack Health medical staff are among a small group in their field to earn a specialty credential from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Howard Glass, Dave Griffin, Dana Van Dorn, Matt Hinge and Marc Bisceglia each earned a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Emergency Medicine. In addition to their certification as physician assistants, these distinctions are earned by meeting licensure, education and experience requirements and then passing an exam in the specialty. Other physician assistants at Adirondack Health who have earned the certification include William Marinis and Roy “Skip” Parker. All of the certified practitioners work in the Emergency Department for Adirondack Health.
