We received 1st place for this news release announcing Executive Constantine’s proposal to rapidly accelerate King County’s capacity to protect open space through an initiative that voters overwhelming approved in November.
Video for News
We were awarded 2nd place for this video on King County’s first Extreme Heat Mitigation Strategy.
We received an Award of Excellence for the press tour we organized at čakwab, a major floodplain restoration project along the Green River that simultaneously reduced flood risks, improved salmon habitat, and provided more food for southern resident orcas.
