Winner Notifications

In an effort to add excitement and creativity to awarding the annual winners, I created unique notifications in the form of a golden ticket, custom cookies custom pins and confetti poppers that revealed winning categories that were mailed to each winning business. These notifications encouraged winners to post on social reaching over 2,000 people year after year.
