Jacobs Agency Wins Gold Stevie Award for Marketing Campaign of the Year

CHICAGO, June 18, 2013 — Jacobs Agency was awarded a gold Stevie® Award for the Nicor Gas Energy Efficiency Program integrated “Liberate” campaign in the Marketing Campaign of the Year/Utilities category. The agency won the bid in Q3 2012 to build awareness for the Energy Efficiency Program, and is slated to continue working on the program through year three.

Since 2002, the American Business Awards has been endowing Stevie Awards to organizations in the US for their achievements in business. Its mission is to raise the profile of exemplary businesses and individuals in the business community and general public.

“We are honored to have won a gold Stevie on behalf of our client. Working with Nicor Gas to promote their Energy Efficiency Program has been a great experience, and we are thrilled that our creative efforts are being recognized,” said Tom Jacobs, President.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” trophies were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Monday, June 17 at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago. Stevie Award nominees and winners are selected by more than 140 executives who participated in the yearly judging process.
