Marketing & Sales

The LeadingAge Washington Excellence in Sales and Marketing Award Program highlights the state’s best sales and marketing strategies, creativity and results in LeadingAge WA communities.  These awards recognize marketers who best understood their audience and really embraced the marketplace and its objectives.  This is the only sales and marketing awards program of its kind throughout LeadingAge WA and LeadingAge nationally.

The goal of this program is twofold.  One is to recognize outstanding sales and marketing work done by our Leading Age WA communities, and the other is to raise the creative level of marketing by highlighting the best and then learning from each other.

The judging of the Sales and Marketing award entries is done by a distinguished panel from WA state representing expertise in advertising, design, websites, digital, social, public relations, events and integrated marketing. Each entry is judged on its own merits, based on the information provided by the applicant in the official entry, and the judges have the option of also awarding the best of show in the form of the Judges Innovation Award.   Award Packet     Online application 

The winners will be announced at our 67th Annual Conference at the Grand Hotel in Spokane,  June 19th
