Public Relations News: Time to Work on Public Relations Entries

By Terri Fassio, CT State Public Relations Co-Director

  August 5, 2021 --

The Public Relations Committee totally revamped our contests for the 2020-2021 year. Now is the time to be planning your entries. The contest deadline is October 1, 2021. It’s easy to participate. Let’s take a quick peek at each one.

1.) Create a Zoom Program

Plan a program for a Grange Meeting on Zoom that keeps your members interested and involved. Record the meeting that your program is presented in then submit this recording for judging.

2.) Celebrate your Grange’s Birthday

Whether you’re celebrating seven years or 140+ years of your Grange’s existence, each birthday is a milestone that should be acknowledged publicly. Whether your Grange has in-person, virtual, or hybrid celebrations, it means thinking outside of the box to show the impact your Grange has made over the years.

This is a great opportunity to highlight your Grange’s achievements, raise awareness of your Grange’s mission, thank your members and community, and reveal exciting updates about your plans for the future.

Submit a detailed written plan on how you intend to celebrate and promote your Grange’s birthday, or

write a synopsis of a past celebration (must be held within the last year). Submissions must include a social media component.

3.) Grange Spotlight Contest

Write a press release spotlighting one project or program that your Grange is involved in or sponsors. This should include the following:

  • Introduction describing the project or program
  • Information on all groups/ organizations involved
  • The goal or outcome of the project/program
  • Date achieved, or of anticipated achievement
  • Paragraph explaining your Grange to non-members
  • Information on how to join the Grange

Final press release should be no longer than 500 words. Submission may include one photo.

All of the complete details, rules, and information for the Public Relations Committee Contests can be found on the Connecticut State Grange website at www.CTStateGrange.org. For questions, send a note to information@ctstategrange.org or publicrelations@ctstategrange.org.
