The City of Tavares public communications department received two awards at the 3CMA annual conference and nationwide competition in Scottsdale, Ariz. 3CMA is a national professional organization that recognizes excellence in government communications and marketing.
Joyce Ross, department director, was awarded a first-place trophy recognizing her fundraising campaign for the Freedom Flag project. This was in the category of “Most Creative Activity with Least Dollars Spent.”
“This has always been my signature category, as it demonstrates that a significant impact can be made with a minimum amount of money,” she says.
She was also awarded a second-place trophy for her photography of Tavares wildlife that was used in the Wooton Park Expansion referendum materials. Ross has enjoyed an extensive career in government communications and has received 70 awards at past competitions.
