Borough of Sayreville wins Communicator Award!

The Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts has officially announced the winners of the 29th Annual Communicator Awards. With around 3,000 entries received from across the US and worldwide, the Communicator Awards is the most extensive and competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals. Winners who received the competition's highest honor, the Award of Excellence or Distinction, include Bank of America, Groove Jones, PBS, Hearts & Science, Pepsico, George Mason University, AARP, and for the second time, the Borough of Sayreville and its communications team.

"The submissions for the 29th season of The Communicator Awards' were some of the most diverse and powerful yet", said AIVA managing director Lauren Angeloni. "I am truly blown away by the quality of the work."

In 2021 the Borough of Sayreville received a Communicator Award for the viral Social Campaign #ISTAYHOMEFORSAYREVILLE garnering national media coverage with its simple message about social distancing and staying home to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. This year, the Borough is being lauded in the Content Marketing and Community Engagement category because of its popular Facebook Page and Borough Blast as part of its integrated communication and community outreach strategy.

The Borough's communication team is overseen by the Business Administrator Glenn Skarzynski, who is no stranger to creating viral and frequently visited Facebook pages for the Sayreville Police Department. “We are incredibly proud that our efforts have been recognized. The hard work of our Communications and Media Liaison, Julie Veloz, and our IT Manager, Tom Bracken, has enhanced our ability to open new dialogues with the people we serve. Thanks to their creativity and technical expertise synergy, we will continue enhancing our digital footprint.”

The Borough will continue to expand its Community Outreach by launching the new Borough Website, programming on SayTV, and launching integrated online portals to make life easier for its residents.
