Nixon Foundation Wins PRSA Silver Anvil Award
YORBA LINDA – The Richard Nixon Foundation along with its agency partners KTStewart, Pinkston Group, James Robie Design and The Woo, was honored with an esteemed Silver Anvil Award by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). The annual ceremony honors organizations that have successfully addressed a contemporary public relations issue with exemplary professional skill, creativity and resourcefulness.
The Foundation was awarded the Silver Anvil in the category of “Events and Observances / More Than Seven Days / Associations/Nonprofit Organizations” for the campaign “It’s Time to Take Another Look at Richard Nixon.” The campaign launched the opening of the new Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in October 2016 following a $15 million renovation. More than 75,000 visitors have enjoyed the museum’s 70 new major exhibits, 30 unique multi-media experiences and more than 300 artifacts since it opened.
“This campaign has brought tens of thousands to Yorba Linda to experience the all-new interactive museum,” said Bill Baribault, President and CEO of the Richard Nixon Foundation. “We thank PRSA for this great honor alongside the nation’s leaders in the communications industry.”
PRSA bestowed 56 Silver Anvils and 68 Awards of Excellences at the annual ceremony in New York City on June 8, 2017.
