Golden Informer Wins National Award

From a city news release today:

The City of Golden’s monthly newsletter, The Golden Informer, will again be recognized among the best in the nation at the City and County Communications and Marketing Association’s Savvy Awards competition Oct. 13 in Texas.

This is the second year The Golden Informer has been a candidate for one of the top three awards in the category for “Printed Publications – External Newsletter” in communities with populations of up to 45,000 people. Last year, it was awarded the prestigious national first place Savvy award.

The Informer is published monthly and mailed to 9,750 residences and businesses in Golden. It is also posted online at for those who live outside the city limits or prefer to read it electronically.

Each year, the number of entries in the 3CMA awards competition grows in quality, array and scope. This year, 690 entries were received. The program reflects the growing skills of local government professionals, as more and more governments and agencies embrace and employ the concepts of enhanced marketing and communication with citizens.

“We frequently hear from citizens about how much The Informer helps them stay informed about goings-on in their community. This national recognition reaffirms that governments can be successful at communicating effectively with citizens,” said Golden Communications Manager Sabrina Henderson. “It is an honor to be nationally recognized for the second year in a row after having made significant efforts to improve The Informer over the past several years.”

It is 3CMA’s policy not to advise finalists of the exact award they have won until the Savvy Awards Dinner at its annual conference. Finalists have been notified that they will receive one of three awards: the prestigious Savvy award, the Silver Circle or the Award of Excellence. This year’s event will be Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Westin Dallas/Fort Worth hotel in Irving, Texas.
