The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) communications team, which oversees the DNR’s social media sites, received three Hashie Awards from the Des Moines Social Club on August 23 at a reception at Jasper Winery.
The DNR was awarded first place finishes for Best Social Media Customer Service and Best Overall Social Media Presence. Jessie Brown, DNR Social Media Manager, was named Social Media Professional of the Year – Gold Level.
“Receiving these awards is a tremendous honor and speaks volumes [about] the great work that our communications team and entire DNR staff statewide does to make our social media sites a top priority and a great avenue to connect with our audience,” said Alex Murphy, DNR Director of Communications.
Across social media platforms, the DNR has nearly 145,000 followers. On average each week, the content on DNR social media sites is seen 1.8 million times by more than one million people.
DNR also won Hashie awards in 2015 and 2016.
