Nebraska’s Winning Streak Continues, Adding Two Summit Creative Awards

The Summit Creative Awards, in its 23rd season, is proud to present two awards to the State of Nebraska for online websites. The first Silver award was presented to the Nebraska State Website in the category of Government Website and the second to the Nebraska Investment Council in the category of Website Redesign.

The newly updated now features information from the Nebraska Budget Information Portal, Bureau of Labor and Statistics, and American’s Health Rankings facts, providing users an instant glance at the dollars spent in appropriations, state ranking for overall health, and unemployment rate comparison to all other states in the nation. The Nebraska Investment Council provides investment services to the State of Nebraska. Newly redesigned with streamlined content organization, fresh, vibrant user interface, and an updated logo, the brilliant and cutting edge design reflects their mission and commitment. Michael Walden-Newman, State Investment Officer states, “We have had terrific feedback. The creative team at Nebraska Interactive did an excellent job of translating our vision into a site we are so proud of. We wanted maximum transparency and organization with classy design and we got exactly what we wanted.” The two awards join the long list of accolades, which include various state agencies and categories of wins.

“The crew at Nebraska Interactive never disappoints. We appreciate the recognition by the Summit Creative Awards. Problem solving solutions for our state partners and connecting them to citizens is what our every day is all about. It brings us great satisfaction,” noted Brent Hoffman, GM of the Nebraska Interactive.

The Summit Creative Award, Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award is piloted by the Summit International Awards, a US-based organization. The Summit Award is not tied to an advertiser, magazine, trade association, ad club or other outside influence. The Summit Awards is independent and international in its scope and focuses on identifying creative, superior and effective marketing. It conducts impartial, 'blind' judging events and, once completed, recognizes, celebrates and promotes creative, effective marketing on behalf of winning companies and individuals.
