        Show off Your Marketing Savvy by Entering the Second Annual USGlass
        Marketing Awards

The Second Annual USGlass Marketing Awards will recognize those companies that have let the imagination and creativity flow when creating their marketing programs. The first annual awards were a great success so don’t let last year’s winners steal all the glory once again. In fact, last year’s winners, including companies such as Pilkington, Gardner Glass Products and Allmetal, (see July 2001 USGlass, page 64, for a list of last year’s winners) are undoubtedly already planning what categories they will enter this year. So don’t delay in preparing your entry forms.

Speaking of last year’s competition, companies can learn a great deal from previous winners. For example, judges for the 2001 awards say if you’re planning on entering your company in the “Best Website” category, grammatical errors are a definite don’t as are technical glitches—flaws not seen in the website of Weathershield Window and Doors which took first place in this category in 2001. Ease-of-use and a visually appealing design were just some of the words judges used to describe why Weathershield deserved top honors. 

See the information below for everything you need to enter the 2002 Marketing Awards including the list of judges and entry deadlines. Good luck and may the best company win!
