Emily Melton and CSTV Mission: SEC Team Win Three MarCom Awards

Remember when we shared the exploits and adventures of our lovable Auburn grad Emily Melton and CSTV’s Mission: SEC Football?

Congratulations to Emily Melton and the entire CSTV Mission: SEC team for winning three MarCom Awards this year…

The project ended yesterday when the clock wound down on the SEC Championship in Atlanta, GA. Florida Wins SEC With a 38-28 Win Over Arkansas.

Well, there is more news. Great news.

All of their hard work and travels across the nine states that make up the SEC – all the while creating videos, blog posts and the “CLOG,” a comic book blog – have paid off.

CSTV Comic BlogCSTV’s Mission: SEC Football won three – count ’em, three – MarCom Awards. The MarCom Awards are “the largest global marketing communication awards competition.” The big news is that “CSTV.com’s Mission SEC Football web site won three prestigious MarCom Awards, including Platinum for best overall web site.” Those quotes from an email Emily shared. Thanks, Emily – and congratulations. We love ya’.

Here is Emily in just one of the many videos they created during the 100 day odyssey. (CSTV doesn’t allow embedding of their videos. Goobers! Think viral.) 😉

Here are the details:

  1. Congratulations to Emily and the crew on a job well done. It’s hard to follow football from Denmark, but I can say that the only football that I half kept up with this year was SEC. Because of their work.

    (I do wish South Carolina had done better, though!)

    Three MarComs? She’s a name to watch.

  2. Thanks, Allan.

    Emily had a good time doing the project. It was tiring, I’m sure, but worth the effort. She is one to watch.

    South Carolina should have a good game in the Liberty Bowl. I think they can take Houston.
