Each year the Central Ohio Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America honors the exceptional public relations efforts of our local professionals and their organizations. Hosted by Carolyn Bruck, weekday anchor from ABC 6 and Fox 28’s Good Day Columbus, this year’s April 27 luncheon included 130 PRSA members, professionals, students, family and friends who joined together to celebrate these accomplishments.
We collected 118 entries from 32 different businesses and organizations and presented 41 Prisms and 42 awards of excellence awards, which were judged by the Hawaii Chapter of PRSA. We also presented four individual chapter awards honoring PRSSA members, young professionals and public relations veterans, which were judged by a local committee.
The 2012 Best in Show Prism Awards were presented to:
- Non-Profit – The Ohio Department of Transportation Keep It Safe Out the Door Music Video by MurphyEpson with the Ohio Department of Transportation.
- Profit – Think. Do. Elevate. Browse by ELEVATE Thinking
This effort couldn’t have been done without dedication and commitment from committee chairs Alisha Wilkes and Aimee Shadwick and committee members Stephanie Seiffert, Melissa Harman, Fay White, Heather Gilbert and Jack Jeffery as well as board liaison and past president Todd Bailey.
We are so fortunate to have such a passionate, creative, and inspirational group of public relations practitioners in central Ohio. Congratulations to all the professionals, businesses and organizations that were recognized during the PRism awards luncheon.
