AirVenture 2013

PRemier Award of Excellence
AirVenture 2013, the world’s largest air show, takes place in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The annual event, hosted by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), attracts aviation enthusiasts throughout the world and is among Wisconsin’s most visited attractions. Over the years, AirVenture has grown from strictly an aviator targeted event to one encompassing a variety of activities for seniors and families with children of all ages. Although EAA has a strong relationship with aviation enthusiasts, L&F worked with the organization to look for opportunities to create general public interest in AirVenture and attendance at the weeklong event.

Menominee Indian School District (MISD) Scholarship Gala

PRemier Award of Excellence
Menominee Indian Public School District is the only Wisconsin public school district located entirely on an Indian Reservation. Some 97% of its approximately 850 students qualify for free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch. But the District doesn’t let poverty impact expectations for student learning. In the past seven years, there’s been a steady and significant improvement in standardized testing, truancy reduction and a dramatic increase in graduation rates. That’s where a challenge occurred. With more graduates, comes more interest in post-secondary education. But many students can’t afford college. That is why a core group, comprised of District leadership, teachers and staff, decided to hold, for the first time, a fundraiser to generate scholarship monies for its students.

Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary Welcomes New Wolves

PRemier Award of Excellence
Last summer, the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary was devastated by the passing of Mowa-sa, the last member of the original wolf pack on exhibit. While it was a sad time for the staff, they also knew they wanted to introduce new wolf pups to revitalize and bring new education opportunities to the exhibit. The Sanctuary was able to secure two new wolf pups in April of 2013. The Sanctuary was excited about the two new additions and realized that the community would be just as excited. L&F worked with Sanctuary staff and other partners to develop a “welcome the wolves” campaign that included a naming contest, a complete overhaul of the exhibit area and a public wolf ‘unveiling’ event for the community.
