Telling effective, compelling messages earned several professionals top honors Thursday.

The Topeka chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators handed out its annual Bronze Quill Awards in a luncheon at the Great Overland Station. The awards are given in a variety of categories and are chosen based on strategy, creativeness, clarity and effectiveness.

The event also featured two top individual awards. Martha Bartlett-Piland of MB Piland Advertising received IABC Topeka's Excellence in Communication Leadership (EXCEL) Award, while Cyndi Menzel of the Kansas National Education Association was named the chapter's Communicator of the Year.
