"For these winning projects, special thanks to Balcom, Pavlov, Cooksey Communications, Red Productions, Four Color Press and Cockrell Enovation for helping the Chamber advance the mission of making Fort Worth an excellent place to live, work and do business.

"A business doesn’t need to go outside of the Fort Worth area when looking for public relations or creative work. The powerhouse agencies and PR practitioners in our city are first-rate, evidenced by the excellent work showcased in the Worthy Awards," she said.

Walter Dansby, superintendent of the Fort Worth Independent School District, was named Communicator of the Year.
Overall, the Fort Worth PRSA chapter handed out 11 Worthy Awards, seven Awards of Excellence and 10 Awards of Achievement.
J.O., a marketing and public relations agency, won four awards, while the Fort Worth ISD Communications Department received three awards.
