The coveted Golden Trumpet Awards are presented for excellence in planning, creativity, execution, and results measurement. In addition, KOS is honored to be a finalist for one of four specialty awards presented by the Publicity Club of Chicago, the Edwin J. Shaughnessy Quality of Life Award. This award recognizes the foremost contribution to improving quality of life in our society through public relations.  KOS has also been nominated for the 2020 Excellence in Advocacy Award given by Women in Government Relations.  The award goes  to  advocates who represent their issue, cause or organization in the public policy arena.  KOS was nominated for the “Excellence in a State Issue Campaign” category. These awards will be presented in September.

The 1/2 Cent for Mental Health campaign won by a commanding 24-point margin, 62%-38%. The referendum that passed will generate $12-13 million in local funding for mental health and substance abuse in Winnebago County.
