Spokane Regional MarCom Association 2014 Spark Awards Winners

— Gonzaga University's '125th Anniversary campaign', RESCUE! Pest Control Products' 'April Fool/Stink Bug Trap', Desautel Hege Communications and Coordinated Care's billboards, and Gonzaga University's 'To Build Up a Great University: Report of the President' were the stars of the Spark Awards on April 16 at The Lincoln Center.

The Spark Awards are presented by the Spokane Regional Marketing and Communications Association (Spokane MarCom) to recognize the best work by local marketing, communications and public relations professionals. Local professionals submitted more than 50 entries ranging from publications and feature stories to website design and media relations campaigns. The award entries were judged by local professionals in the marketing and communications field that did not submit entries for this year's awards. The top entries out of all submissions received Brightest Spark Awards.

The Brightest Spark Award recipients were as follows: 'April Fool/Stink Bug Trap', RESCUE! Pest Control Products; 'Gonzaga 125th Anniversary', Gonzaga University; 'Coordinated Care Billboard', Desautel Hege Communications & Coordinated Care, 'To Build Up a Great University: Report of the President', Gonzaga University.

The new Blaze Award honoring the best of Division 2 Campaign entries was awarded to RESCUE! Pest Control Products for their 'April Fool/Stink Bug Trap' entry. Judges noted that this entry was clear and concise, and the campaign was fun and innovative. It stood above the rest due to its creativity, organization, measurable results and consistent message.

The Dussault Community Impact Award was awarded at the discretion of the judges for a campaign/program that demonstrated clear impact within the Spokane community. The winner of the Dussault Community Impact Award was Gonzaga University's 125th Anniversary campaign.

The judges noted that for so many, the Gonzaga community is also the Spokane community. The impact the campaign had for Gonzaga has a ripple effect across the entire Spokane community and our region. Alumni and students are woven throughout Spokane so the pride and goodwill created by the campaign extended beyond the campus.

The judges also awarded Excellence and Merit Awards for multiple categories based upon specified criteria. For a complete list of 2014 winners go to SpokaneMarCom.org.
