PROTOS AWARD

East Orange County Water District

Sewer Area 7 Transfer

Public Affairs Programs

Communications LAB developed and executed a successful, multi-faceted campaign to help its client, East Orange County Water District (EOCWD), secure from the Orange County Local Agency Formation Commission, approval of an agreement to allow the transfer of ownership of the local sewer system from the Orange County Sanitation District to EOCWD. The campaign involved a combination of strategies and tactics that included community and media outreach, public information and education, stakeholder engagement and government education.

AWARD OF EXCELLENCE

Communications LAB - Haiku Holidays

Collateral Materials for External Audiences

Communications LAB created a unique holiday card that was distributed to all past, current and potential clients as well as vendors among the client base. Using our new, in-house creative services, we created “Haiku Holidays” which was a two-sided card with advent-style flaps on the front. Each employee then wrote a personal Haiku and the back of the card had a message to the receiver from Communications LAB. Part two of the project, asked for individuals to write their own, personal “Holiday Haiku” and take it to social media to share it on the Communications Lab page. Following the project’s implementation, Communications LAB saw a 14 percent rise in request for creative services and an increase in social media engagements/reach.

Southern California Edison – Edison Scholars

Media Relations Program

Communications LAB developed and executed a successful media relations campaign that increased favorable news coverage for its client, Southern California Edison (SCE), and its “Edison Scholars” program, in Spanish language media markets throughout the company’s 50,000 square-mile, 14-million resident service territory. With Communications LAB as its new public relations/Hispanic outreach firm of record, SCE experienced a 78 percent increase in media placements when its “Edison Scholars” college scholarship recipients were announced, including an in-studio television interview for an Emmy-Award-winning Los Angeles morning show on Univision, an evening news feature on Telemundo in Central California, and general market coverage on the ABC television affiliate in Santa Barbara.

AWARD OF EXCELLENCE

Santa Margarita Water District - “Reduce Your Use”

Public Affairs Program

Communications LAB developed and executed a successful, multi-faceted campaign for its client, Santa Margarita Water District, to raise public awareness about statewide drought and water use restrictions, to change customers water use habits and reduce consumption by 36 percent, and to prepare them for a drought-related rate increase. The campaign involved a combination of strategies and tactics that included public outreach and education, earned and paid media, public opinion surveys, direct mail, door-to-door canvasing, website development, and video production for television and online media.
