The Totem Award celebrates creativity and accomplishment, designed to recognize projects and programs that demonstrate excellence in PR and rise above the competition. We’re thrilled that the Puget Sound PRSA recognized us for our work on behalf of our clients. RH won two Totems for:

  • RH Strategic Totem Awards 2016GCI TERRA – We were tasked with illustrating how GCI’s mission of bringing high speed broadband to rural communities in Alaska could be transformative and worthy of public support. Through pursuing award opportunities, planning a local event to build momentum and leveraging storytelling, we secured award-winning results that have helped raise awareness of GCI and its TERRA project. To learn more about our work with GCI TERRA, read our case study on how we helped them win an $88M proposal.
  • Randstad Technologies – We differentiated Randstad Technologies from its parent company by identifying a major nation-wide visibility opportunity. With the mandatory changeover to Chip and PIN technology wherever credit cards are accepted, the PR team chose to “newsjack” this trending story to connect Randstad Technologies subject matter experts with the media, positioning the company as a top-shelf resource on how to prepare for the changeover. To learn more about our work with Randstad Technologies, read our case study on how we promoted their experts.

We crave challenging and compelling PR work, and design our campaigns as award-worthy.  It’s great to be acknowledged in a way that reinforces the work we are doing is a cut above the rest.
