The deadline to submit nominations for the 2014 ARTBA PRIDE Awards, which celebrate excellence in public education and community relations campaigns, is Tuesday, April 29. The annual competition is open to all industry firms, agencies and associations and ARTBA membership is not required.

Nominations are accepted in two categories: “Community Relations,” which recognizes a firm/agency who has programs and activities that demonstrate positive civic involvement; and “Public Media Relations/Education,” which pays tribute to programs and activities that educate the public and opinion leaders about the significant contributions the transportation construction industry (or a specific sector of it) makes to the economy and/or quality of life.

Nominations should be submitted online.

Winners will be selected from an independent panel of public relations and construction journalists and awards will be presented during a special June 10 luncheon held in conjunction with ARTBA’s Federal Issues Program in Washington, D.C.
