PALATKA, Fla., Aug. 14, 2019 — The St. Johns River Water Management District’s Office of Communications was recently honored by the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) with a Golden Image Award for its Blue Schools Grant Program video.
The district’s Office of Communications produced the video in-house to improve public awareness of the grant program and increase teacher applications. The Blue Schools Grant Program has provided $46,552 to 3,543 students at 33 schools for educational projects focused on Florida’s water resources.
“We are proud to have our work recognized but especially grateful that the award-winning video is getting attention for the Blue Schools Grant,” said Communications Manager Nancy Rubin. “The classroom programs we fund encourage the next generation of Florida homeowners and leaders to better understand their role in protecting our natural resources and we know this knowledge will benefit our region for years to come.”
The honor was presented at the FPRA 81st Annual Conference in Tampa. Recognized as the hallmark for excellence in public relations, winners of this prestigious competition demonstrate the very best examples of innovation, planning and design in public relations.
