Public Relations News: PR Contest Winners

By Terri Fassio: State Public Relations Co-Director

  November 8, 2017 --

The Public Relations committee offered three contests for 2017. The Video Contest and the Cooperative Partnership Contest both had zero entries. This is too bad, especially with the Cooperative Partnership Contest, as we know of a number of Granges who actually had a Cooperative Partnership with another organization during the year, but did not enter the contest. Let’s hope the contests have a few entries next year.

The Social Media Participation Contest was the third Public Relations Contest for 2017. Granges were automatically entered into this contest by effectively and actively managing a proper Facebook and/or Twitter Page. The winner are as follows:

Facebook Winners:

1st: Cheshire Grange

2nd: Ekonk Community Grange

3rd: Winchester Grange

Twitter Winners:

Tie: Cannon & Winchester Granges

All Granges with Facebook and/or Twitter Pages will receive a special participation certificate. Winning certificates will be mailed to each Grange.

The Public Relations committee is again offering the same three contests for 2018, all with a deadline of October 1st. It’s easy to participate. Let’s take a quick peek at each one.

1) Promote Your Grange Creative Video Contest: Create a video promoting your Grange. The video can be any length, and of any theme. New this year — the video must be created by the Grange (or a member of the Grange) and not be produced by a non-Grange entity.

2) Best Cooperative Partnership Contest: An integral part of Grange public relations is partnering with other local groups and organizations. This could be a co-hosted event, a co-sponsorship of a project or initiative, a project to benefit or honor a group/organization, and so much more! Write a description of how your Grange has integrated/utilized a Cooperative Partnership, and include a photo to accompany the description if appropriate.

3) Social Media Participation Contest: Create a Buzz about your Grange, its projects, activities and events by managing a proper Facebook or Twitter Page. This contest is open to all Community Granges and Junior Granges. Pages must be active at any point within the period of November 1, 2017 - October 1, 2018.

All of the details, rules, and information for the contests can be found on the Connecticut State Grange website at www. CTStateGrange.org, and are available in the Blue Book. Entries should be mailed to Robert Charbonneau, 102 Spring Street, Meriden CT 06451, or sent via e-mail to publicrelations@ctstategrange.org.
