City wins three communication awards

Jun 12, 2010 (The Wilson Daily Times - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- The city of Wilson recently won three 2010 Excellence in Communications awards from the N.C. City and County Communicators.

Since 2006, the city has won 12 national and state awards for its communication services. The 2010 awards include two first place awards for "Save NC Broadband," the city's blog about its fiber-to-the-home network, provided through Greenlight, and "Historically Speaking," a video program about people and places in Wilson's history. The city also won a second place award for a video about public power.

A total of 38 awards were presented in 21 categories by the NC City and County Communications, an organization designed to encourage professional development and networking among local government communication professionals. The organization, founded in 2007, has 70 members in North Carolina. Judges for the competition included award-winning local government communication professionals from Arizona, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts and Virginia.

"We're grateful for this recognition at the state level," said Brian Bowman, public affairs manager. "Effective communication plays an important role in public service." In addition to the NC3C awards, the city also won two national Silver Circle awards from the City County Communication and Marketers Association, in 2009.
