Even though the Intent to Submit deadline for Excellence in Construction Awards entries has passed, there is still time to put together an entry. If you think you have an award-winning project, it’s not too late! Entries are not due until June 7, and we would be more than happy to enter your project into the program. You may be asking, “Why should I spend the time putting together an entry?” Or you may be thinking, “That project is done, and I don’t want to think about it anymore!”
There are plenty of benefits to earning an Excellence in Construction Award for your company. One of the easiest and most effective ways to utilize your award is through marketing. It can be as simple as adding the EIC Award Logo (which we provide) to your email signature. You can also add the logo to other marketing and media campaigns you already have in place.
ABC Keystone sends out a press release to media outlets throughout South Central PA announcing the award winners. We also provide you with a press release template, again trying to make it as easy as possible for you, to distribute to your media contacts. We want our members to gain as much exposure as possible for their accomplishments and will help you with your press release template if needed.
We haven’t even touched on the award itself! Having clients and partners walk in to your office to see the impressive Eagle Award on display will be a great topic
of conversation and another opportunity to talk about the great work that you and your team are doing.
Speaking of your team, the awards dinner is a great opportunity to recognize your team for all their hard work on these projects. The team can enjoy a night out to celebrate. We also provide a place to take a team photo that can be used in marketing for the company or a way to highlight teamwork in an HR campaign.
So instead of asking yourself, “Why should I be submitting an entry?” You should be asking yourself, “Why haven’t I submitted yet?”
