Navasota is in the running for yet another award.
According to a press release on Friday afternoon, finalists in the 2020 President’s Award Program, which is sponsored by the Texas Downtown Association, have been selected. Navasota is a finalist in the category of Best Promotion-Digital Campaign, due to the work on Shop Local Navasota campaign.
Shop Local Navasota was developed to promote local businesses and provide some much needed COVID-19 updates. The site contains information on the businesses, an Instagram page, and the Navasota Economic Development Corporation’s Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant.
There were 104 entries in 11 different categories, from communities across the state. Due to the number of entries, the entries were divided into two categories, Design and Achievement, with separate judging panels for each.
Winners are going t be announced virtually on the Texas Downtown Association Facebook page, with Design Awards on Tuesday October 27th at 12 pm, Achievement awards on Wednesday, October 28th at 12 pm, and the Individual Awards on October 29th at 12 pm.
The virtual 2020 Texas Downtown Association Conference goes on November 9th through 12th. More information is online at texasdowntown.org.
Applications for the 2021 awards will open in the Spring.
