The American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) recently made the annual presentation of their prestigious "Pollie Awards" recognizing excellence in public affairs. The Pollie Awards honor the best examples of political campaign advertising and expertise. Winners are selected from more than eighty different categories, representing a broad spectrum of political and public affairs communications.
NRA-ILA is pleased to announce that two of our websites won a total of five Pollie Awards! Taking first place for "National Grassroots Website" was www.ClintonGunBan.com, the recently designed site which serves as a resource to educate our four million members about the politics behind the so-called "assault weapons" ban.
Taking top honors in the National Organization Website group was www.NRAILA.org, NRA-ILA`s primary website.
The www.ClintonGunBan.com site also earned second place for "Issue Advocacy in a National Internet Campaign," and Honorable Mention in the "Flash Animation" category. The www.NRAILA.org site also took third place honors in the "National Public Affairs Website" category.
Please be sure to visit these informative, award-winning websites often, since new items are frequently added. Also, please add them to your bookmarks and forward them to others who need to be informed about our issue. Finally, please contact your U.S. Representative and Senators and urge them to oppose current legislation seeking to greatly expand the 1994 Clinton gun ban—H.R. 2038, H.R. 3831, S. 1431, and S. 1034.
