This year, 919 Marketing received the Silver Telly Award in the “Local TV — Campaign — Not-for-Profit” category for a video created for the NC 529 Plan, North Carolina’s National College Savings Program, which enables any residents of the state to invest for qualified education expenses. The video, called “Dreamer,” features children preparing for their future as a result of the college savings plan.
919 Marketing also won a Bronze Telly Award in the same category for a video created for the College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC). Called “Rewind,” the video invites graduating high school students to apply to college using CFNC. CFNC is a free service that promotes access to North Carolina higher education and assists students with education planning, career planning, and college applications and payment.
Overall, this makes the seventh and eighth Telly Awards the company has received since its first award in 2015.
“We are extremely honored to have been recognized for the work we do to tell the stories of our clients,” says David Chapman, CEO of 919 Marketing Company. “Our in-house video team does an amazing job of helping our clients discover their unique brand message and engage and inspire their customers or stakeholders.”
“We are proud to have a partner who can tell our story in a meaningful way to motivate thousands of North Carolina students to take the next step towards a bright future,” says Laura Morgan, Vice President of Communications, Savings and Legal Affairs at College Foundation, Inc. “919 Marketing truly understands the work that we do, and has assembled an incredibly strong team with a deep bench of creative and strategic thinkers to help us engage and inspire students and families to take action to better their lives.”
