2012 Silver Anvil Award of Excellence Winner — Integrated Communications — Associations / Government / Nonprofit Organizations
Georgia has the second highest rate of childhood obesity in the U.S. If Georgia families don’t take action soon, this may be the first generation of children to live shorter lives than their parents. Because of this epidemic, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta launched the Strong4Life campaign to raise awareness and highlight this societal issue. This integrated marketing approach, which included advertisements, traditional media relations, social media, programs and partnerships garnered more than 10 million impressions and brought much needed attention to a critical issue in Georgia.
