“It is my honor to congratulate all the 2020 NC3C Excellence in Communications contest winners,” said Rebecca Carter, NC3C President. “Each year I’m blown away by the incredible talent of local government communicators in North Carolina. The creativity and expertise NC3C members show in communicating, informing and educating their residents showcase not only their ability and skill, but also how much they care about their communities. I’m so proud to be part of this remarkable group.”
The awards were announced in a virtual awards ceremony, Friday, June 26, due to the cancellation of this year’s annual NC3C Spring Conference. All 192 award program entries were judged by professional communications peers from the Minnesota Association of Government Communicators.
