The 43nd Annual Thoth Awards celebrates the talent and innovation of Washington, DC area public relations professionals. During the awards ceremony, held at the National Press Club in downtown Washington, DC, 27 Thoth Awards and 16 Certificates of Excellence awards were presented to Washington, DC area firms. The SRS staff attended the event and accepted the Thoth in the Media Relations category.
The Thoth Award was presented to SRS for the Secretary’s Labor Day RMT project, which was judged to be representative of the best work in the public relations industry.
