SCOUT garnered three awards, including:
- PLATINUM: Nature's Own Good and Simple Integrated Campaign -- To help make life a little less complicated for busy moms, SCOUT, with media planning and buying partner BrandCottage, created this new year-long campaign for Nature's Own designed to bring back the "Good and Simple" life that moms long for. Supported by TV, radio, digital, social, FSIs, out-of-home and new delivery truck designs, the campaign brings to life the good and simple stories that mean the most to moms in daily family life.
- GOLD: Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation Pro Bono Campaign -- SCOUT created the "Stand Tall" ad campaign for this organization, founded in honor of fallen 9/11 firefighter Stephen Siller to provide much-needed help to first responders and service members in times of crisis. The video and print campaign asks people to "Stand Tall"—like these heroes have for us—by donating $11 dollars to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to help first responders and military.
- HONORABLE MENTION: KaDunks :30 Single Spot – KaDunks, a new innovative dipping candy created by start-up YOLO Candy, called on SCOUT to create equally as innovative creative to help sell their new product into Walmart.

Walmart accepted the product based on the innovative product, innovative creative and investment in media to drive sales.
