The department also received the Award of Excellence in the category of Graphic Design – Other (population 100,000+) for a series of Interpretive Nature Signage Redesigns completed in early 2021. The project was a major initiative to redesign 15 outdated, run down, and irrelevant educational signs along a nature center trail and nature boardwalk at Daggerwing Nature Center in Boca Raton, and Okeeheelee Nature Center in West Palm Beach. Much of the work, including coordination, design, and installation, was done in-house by department staff.
The 2021 Savvy Awards recognizes creativity, effectiveness, and success of programs produced from January 1, 2019 to mid-2021. It is an opportunity to compete with government communicators from across the nation and to be honored with the nation’s top professional recognition.
3CMA is the nation's premiere network of local government communicators. The organization was founded in 1988 on the philosophy that communications and marketing are essential to helping governments engage and build stronger relationships with their residents. Effective public communicators are vital to local government success, linking residents to the essential information they need to access services and be part of the democratic process.
