Each year, PR News celebrates the individuals and teams making a positive impact through nonprofit PR, marketing and communications campaigns at PR News' Spring Awards luncheon in Washington, D.C.
At this year's luncheon, held March 22 at the National Press Club, PR News honored the winners and finalists of its Nonprofit PR Awards, which ranged from larger organizations like Goodwill and the American Heart Association to smaller, local agencies and nonprofits like Singer Associates and Plaza Jewish Community Chapel. The winners and honorable mentions of the CSR Awards were also celebrated at the event.
On the podium, winners were asked to share inspiration and points of pride from their winning campaigns. Some winners responded with wit ("It's amazing how far you can go with a few great cheese puns," said a representative from the American Cheese Society). Others shared the most gratifying aspects of their work: American Heart Association cited "lives saved and better health outcomes" as a result of their winning PSA campaign, which urged those witnessing a cardiac event to dial 911 rather than driving to the hospital themselves.
