East Caln Township Wins Top Honors in Statewide Communication Contest

Chuck DeLone accepting Award

East Caln Township has won the top honor of Outstanding Citizen Communication (Population 5,000 and Under), in the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors’ (PSATS) 54th Annual Citizen Communication Contest. The contest recognizes townships that have successfully communicated programs and activities to their residents. This award will also be given to a township with a population over 5,000 (Cranberry Township in Butler County). 

The association presented the Outstanding Citizen Communication Award to Township Supervisor Chuck DeLone at PSATS’ Annual Educational Conference April 25th.

In addition to the Outstanding Citizen Communication Award, East Caln Township also received two categorical awards, tying for first place in the Newsletters, Population 5,000 and Under category, and tying for third place for its website. 

The contest attracted entries from across the commonwealth in eight categories, including printed and electronic newsletters, most improved newsletters, other publications, audiovisual communication, cable TV programs, social media, and websites. In all, 31 townships submitted 102 entries for this year’s competition, and 17 individual townships won awards.   

All contest entries were judged on the usefulness of information presented and how well the information was communicated to township residents. Publications were also judged on their overall attractiveness and readability.

Judges included PSATS staff and township officials who volunteer through the Association’s Power of One program.
