County Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Receives State Marketing and Communications Award

The Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism is receiving the Showcase Marketing and Communications Award from the Maryland Recreation and Parks Association (MRPA) in the category of social media for the 2017 Summer Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Report. 

The 2017 Summer Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Report highlighted summer camps, swim programs, and the annual Celebrate Charles: A Fun Filled Fourth.

“Our department is always seeking ways to engage and inform residents about our services and programs,” said Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Director Eileen Minnick. “I’m proud our staff received this state award and look forward to seeing their innovative spin on future social media efforts.” 

The MRPA Agency Showcase provides an opportunity for Maryland's park and recreation agencies to highlight their talent, share ideas, and recognize the best marketing and promotions materials in the state. Entrants were judged by art, marketing, and communications professionals who are not members of the MRPA. 

The Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism will be presented with the award at the Celebrating Excellence Showcase Awards Luncheon and Silent Auction on Thursday, March 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Cylburn Arboretum, located at 4915 Greenspring Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland.
