Cobb EMC recently received recognition in the 2014 “Spotlight on Excellence” national awards program, sponsored by the Council of Rural Electric Communicators and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Cobb EMC employees Angela Shipp and Leslie Thompson received a Silver Award in the External News Publication Category for “Connections,” the cooperative’s member newsletter. Additionally, Nurdan Cornelius, Nataly Hart and Angela Shipp received a Silver Award in the E-newsletter Category for Cobb EMC’s e-newsletter.

The annual Spotlight awards competition recognizes the top-rated communication and marketing efforts by electric cooperatives and related organizations. Participants in the awards competition competed with electric cooperatives of similar sizes in 18 categories. Electric cooperative communicators and marketing professionals submitted more than 680 entries in the Spotlight on Excellence program, now in its 26th year. Faculty members from the University of Missouri – Columbia, University of South Carolina and Ohio University Scripps-Howard School of Journalism judged the entries.

A special reception honored the award recipients during the Connect ‘14 Conference held in San Antonio, Texas on May 12. Winning entries were displayed during the event.
