Town Wins Three Statewide Communications Awards

Post Date:12/03/2018 11:44 AM

The Town of Garner has won three 2018 Excellence in Communications Awards from the N.C. Association of Government Information Officers (NCAGIO), including first-place honors in the broadcast/PSA programs category for the "Discover. Play. Celebrate." promotional video made for Garner Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources.

The Town also brought home second-place honors in the broadcast programs category for the "Garner Update" newscast with Arlie Honeycutt and in the news release/feature writing category for the Town's Amazon announcement.

The awards were presented at the NCAGIO's annual seminar in Chapel Hill on Nov. 29.

The honors cap off a banner year for the Town's communications efforts. In April, the Town and its partner, the Downtown Garner Association (DGA), won six first-place and three second-place Excellence in Communications Awards from N.C. City and County Communicators (NC3C). It was the most awards won by any jurisdiction in NC3C's statewide awards competition in 2018.

The award-winning work in 2018 involved the skillful and diligent efforts of the Town's Economic Development, Finance, Administration, and Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Departments, as well as the DGA and Ms. Honeycutt.
