Saxum, an integrated marketing communications agency offering public relations, advertising and digital services, was recently awarded a national Silver Anvil Award by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).
Saxum was recognized for its efforts in issues management among nonprofits and associations for the Tulsa Public Schools Project Schoolhouse initiative. Saxum also received an Award of Excellence in the Community Relations category for the same project.
Fifty-five Silver Anvil awards and 86 Awards of Excellence were presented to more than 40 organizations across the country. Saxum was the only agency in Oklahoma to win a Silver Anvil in this year’s competition.
“Project Schoolhouse was an outstanding example of a successful integrated communications effort focused on a collaborative approach to creating a better learning environment for the Tulsa Public Schools,” said Saxum President Debbie Schramm. “Saxum worked closely with the school district to engage students, families and stakeholders throughout the city, which resulted in strong overall support from the community for the Tulsa Public Schools’ improvement initiatives.”
