SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sagent (formerly ProProse), the Sacramento-based social marketing agency, was recognized by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) for its "Be Alert" Caltrans campaign.
The two professional organizations independently bestowed honors upon Sagent and its partner, Glass Agency, for development and management of the multi-media campaign. The awards included a 2015 PRSA Influencer Award for External Community Relations Campaign and top national honors from the ARTBA.
"We are so pleased to be recognized by PRSA and ARTBA for our work on the "Be Alert" campaign for Caltrans," said Anne Staines, president at Sagent Marketing. "Creating campaigns that positively impact our community is at the core of what we do, and it's truly an honor to be recognized for this influential work."
Caltrans contracted with Sagent and Glass to create messaging that increases driver awareness and improves safety for highway workers. The positive impact campaign runs through March 31, 2016 and features children of Caltrans workers who urge drivers to be alert because their parents are at work. Billboards with the message strategically line busy highways.
Currently, Sagent contracts with Caltrans, various government agencies, non-profits and private entities to create campaigns that inspire people to live healthier, safer and more sustainable lives.
