|County's Solid Waste Services Division Earns Multiple Awards for Outreach, Education Campaigns|
Founded in 1978, the Telly Awards honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials, non-broadcast videos and TV programs. The 34th Annual Telly Awards received more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents.
Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional materials and programs and emerging technologies. The awards program is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals, an international organization with several thousand members.
“We know that the residents of Montgomery County will support recycling activities if we just give them the right information in ways that make it interesting and understandable. These recognitions by the communications industry prove that we are doing a good job at getting the word out,” said Bob Hoyt, Director of the Department of Environmental Protection, “We will continue to encourage even more recycling in an effort to achieve the goal of recycling 70% of our waste and remaining the number one recycling county in the state.”
Nominations for the DSWS campaigns were submitted by TRI (Technical Resources International) a Bethesda-based firm which provides support assistance to DSWS in its communications efforts.
The following awards were received in various categories:
• 2013 Bronze Telly Award for the “Just Mow & Go! Video” in the Online/Green/Eco-Friendly category.
