Georgetown County Public Information Officer Jackie Broach won six awards in this year’s National Association of County Information Officers Awards of Excellence competition. The winners were announced  July 26. 

The competition recognizes information projects that exhibit expertise in communications. It is open to all counties in the U.S., and there are no divisions separating counties by population, so Georgetown competed against much larger and better funded counties including Mecklenburg County, N.C.; Broward County, Fla.; and Maricopa County, Ariz.

Broach won the following:

• Best in Category, General Information Campaign for the county’s campaign informing the public about redistricting efforts.

• Superior Work (2nd place), Photo or Photo Series for capturing the county’s Quilt’s of Valor ceremony.

• Excellent Work (3rd place), Photo or Photo Series for capturing the inaugural Anthuan Maybank Day celebration.

• Three Meritorious Work (4th place) awards for: Multi-platform Social Media Campaign for her Black History Month series; Newsletter; and Photo or Photo Series for capturing the Bassmaster Collegiate tournament last fall.

Officials with the National Association of County Information Officers said this year’s program was very competitive.
