About 80 different Spark awards were presented to groups, businesses and associations for creative work. This was the 15th year the Spark Awards were presented, said MarCom Event Chair Leslie White Hebert of Coffman Engineers.
The three top “Brightest Spark” awards went to:
• GONZAGA UNIVERSITY and Spokane agency Magner Sanborn, for the spring 2009 fundraising campaign “Share Inspiration.” The fundraising effort, with a strong emphasis on social media and e-mail marketing, was cited also for the Dussault Award, which recognizes a campaign that “enhances the vitality and vibrancy of the community,” according to a citation from a group of Seattle judges who made that selection.
• The CITY OF SPOKANE, with Coeur d’Alene agency Hanna & Associates, for a water conservation campaign for citizens called “Slow the Flow.”
• THE SPOKANE REGIONAL CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU, along with Spokane agency Klundt | Hosmer, for the social media campaign “SpoTweetDeals.”
