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 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.
