Lake County honored with national award for 2006 annual report

RELEASE DATE: November 2, 2007

TAVARES — Lake County received notice this week that it has been awarded its first-ever Savvy Award from the City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA) for the 2006 Annual Report.

A Fresh Outlook
The title of the 2006 Annual Report was "A Fresh Outlook." The 24-page report featured vibrant graphics and descriptive phrases that played off the agricultural-related theme. In addition, seed packets of various flowers accompanied the annual report at the State of the County presentation.

The Lake County Office of Information Outreach designed the entire annual report, which also recently won a Red Baron Media Award at the 13th Annual Convention and Trade Show of the Florida Festivals and Events Association in August 2007.

"We were competing nationwide, so this Savvy Award is really an honor, and definitely well deserved for producing such a stunning and well-written report," said Kelly LaFollette, Director of the Office of Information Outreach.

The 19th Annual Savvy Awards competition recognizes outstanding local government achievements in communications, public-sector marketing and citizen-government relationships. According to 3CMA's Web site at www.3cma.org, the competition salutes skilled and effective city, county professionals who have creatively planned and carried out successful innovations in communications.

The 2007 Annual Report, titled "A Picture of Success," is scheduled to be unveiled at the Board of County Commissioners' Annual State of the County presentation on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 9 a.m. in the Commission Chambers, located on the second floor of the Lake County Administration Building at 315 W. Main St. in Tavares. The public is invited to attend.
