Jill Jentes Banicki, Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Lab’s assistant director for communications, was presented with the National Sea Grant Communications Network’s 2021 Communications Service Award yesterday.

The award “recognizes a Sea Grant communications professional’s accomplishments, creativity and vision, along with their contributions and commitment to the Sea Grant community.”

Judges noted that “regionally, Jill has been a strong and innovative leader, which has had national implications,” and that “she has developed several models that many of us look toward regarding student recruitment, university relations, and branding.”

Over her 20+ years with Ohio Sea Grant, Jill has served as Great Lakes regional chair, on a marketing committee for the Great Lakes Observing System, and on an outreach committee for the Great Lakes Information Network, just to name a few roles. She will also begin a term as the National Sea Grant Communications Network Chair in 2023.
