Walker Marketing has been named a finalist in the Public Relations Society of America's 2011 national Silver Anvil Awards for its work on the Save Ben Mynatt Chevrolet Cadillac campaign.
The award is the public relations profession's most prestigious honor. Nominations are in categories, depending on the campaign's target audience and strategy.
The annual event honors organizations that have successfully addressed a contemporary public relations issue with commendable professional skill, creativity and resourcefulness.
The Save Ben Mynatt Chevrolet Cadillac campaign helped the Concord car dealership keep its franchise after General Motors targeted it for closure in 2010. The campaign created coverage in local media outlets and a groundswell of community support to keep the 33-year old dealership open. That support included letters from prominent political figures, a bustling Facebook page and more than 1,700 supporters.
This year's PRSA awards received more than 850 entries, and fewer than 15percent are finalists.
Silver Anvil winners will be announced June 9 in New York City.
