“This award signifies the recognition of our hard work to establish an identity for the City,” said President and CEO of the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce and Industry Tim Chase. “Through the Pride in the Falls campaign, our goal is to give current and future residents a reason to work, live and become a part of Wichita Falls, and we could not be happier about the acknowledgment the campaign is receiving. There truly is pride in the falls, and Texas is learning all about it.”
Over the past 10 months, Wichita Falls has either revitalized current businesses for new leases or attracted new businesses that relocated to the region. In turn, these businesses are in the process of creating more than 2,100 jobs and $123,920,000 of annual economic impact.
The AMCP “honors excellence and recognizes the creativity and hard work of marketing and communications through the MarCom Awards.” More than 5,000 awards are submitted from around the world each year, and typically, only 15 percent of entries win Platinum Awards while another 15 percent win Gold Awards. Platinum winners receive scores between 90 to 100 points, Gold winners receive 80 to 89 points and those receiving 70 to 79 points win an Honorable Mention certificate.
