The League City Communications Department has been recognized with multiple state and national awards by the Texas Association of Municipal Information Officers and the City-County Communications & Marketing Association, or 3CMA. The TAMIO awards are considered the highest honors in the state for communications professionals and the 3CMA “Saavy Awards” represent excellence among the nation's premiere network of local government communicators. This is the first year League City has won first place awards from both associations.
“I am extremely proud of the League City Communications team’s efforts to engage our residents and local businesses, particularly during COVID and the many challenges it has brought,” said Director of Communications, Sarah Greer-Osborne. “We produced some amazing multimedia and print materials that I hope have helped our residents become more aware of the services and resources our local City government provides."
The City received five TAMIO awards in multiple categories, including two first-place awards, for Best Use of Promotional Item (League City Landmarks Coloring Book) and Flyers and Posters (Daddy Daughter Dance flyer). An Award of Excellence was won for a One-Time Program Video (Oreo’s Story of Hope) and two Awards of Honor were earned for Public Service Announcement (League City’s Year in Review), and External Newsletter or Magazine (City Matters). The City also earned two, first place SAAVY awards for Marketing and Tools - Government Service Delivery/Community Issue (League City Holiday Shop Local Campaign) and Printed Publications (League City Landmarks Coloring Book).
“The Shop Local Holiday campaign was truly a collaborative effort, not only between Communications and other City departments, but with our non-profit partners including the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Bay Area Houston Ballet and Theatre,” said City Manager John Baumgartner. “When we all work together as a community, we can truly accomplish great things. Having our City receive national recognition for our efforts is just the icing on the cake. Stay tuned for this year’s shop local campaign during the holiday season. Our Communications and Economic Development Departments are partnering up once again and have some exciting things planned.”
The awards are being displayed in the lobby of City Hall.
