The Public Relations Society of America New York chapter honored Momentum with its Best of the Best Award for Reputation Management at the 2021 Big Apple Awards. The prestigious annual awards recognize outstanding PR campaigns across the U.S. and were handed out at a gala event at Manhattan’s Edison Ballroom on September 28, 2021.

Momentum was recognized for its integrated communications campaign on behalf of longtime education client Teaching Matters. The campaign, “Educators in Crisis: Supporting a Nation of Teachers in a Pandemic Landscape,” reached nearly 125 million people, including over 120,000 educators.

This year, 115 entries were evaluated by 75 judges, all senior-level communications practitioners representing a broad range of disciplines and expertise. Fellow nominees included Quest Diagnostics and agencies Hunter and Coyne Public Relations.

This is Momentum’s third consecutive win of a major PR award in as many years. The agency took home the Grand Prize for Nonprofit PR Agency Team of the Year at the 2020 Nonprofit PR Awards and the Nonprofit PR Award for Best Advocacy or Awareness Campaign in 2019.
