Bellmont Partners Adds Another Classics Award to the Shelf

We had a fan­tas­tic time at the Min­neso­ta PRSA Clas­sics Awards last night, hon­or­ing our town’s best and bright­est strate­gic com­mu­ni­ca­tors and cel­e­brat­ing the great­est work and achieve­ments of our local PR community.

It was a treat to vis­it The Machine Shop and take in the beau­ti­ful sights of the his­toric, spa­cious venue.

Bell­mont Part­ners took home the win in the Mar­ket­ing Ser­vices, Agency/Organization with <25 Employ­ees cat­e­go­ry for our work with long­time client Grad­Staff, an out­sourced col­lege recruit­ing firm. Bell­mont Part­ners reached key influ­encers, estab­lished cred­i­bil­i­ty for Grad­Staff and its lead­er­ship, and coor­di­nat­ed sev­er­al high-pro­file nation­al media hits on,,, in Amer­i­can City Busi­ness Jour­nals, and more.

We were also named a final­ist in the fol­low­ing categories:

Brand Research and Insights: We helped Sec­ond Har­vest Heart­land launch a pub­lic aware­ness cam­paign by first con­duct­ing an audi­ence analy­sis and pri­or­i­ti­za­tion exer­cise, and then devel­op­ing a key mes­sag­ing plat­form. Both the analy­sis and plat­form were informed by more than two months of research, in-depth stake­hold­er inter­views and strat­e­gy ses­sions. All of this up-front research has informed the exe­cu­tion phase of our work with this impor­tant organization.

Com­mu­ni­ty Rela­tions, Agency/Organization with <25 employ­ees: Bell­mont Part­ners has part­nered with Advance IT Min­neso­ta since the launch of the Aspi­ra­tions in Com­put­ing Awards in Min­neso­ta in 2012 to help pro­mote the awards pro­gram for high school girls to poten­tial appli­cants, school dis­tricts and poten­tial spon­sors. We’ve told the sto­ry of bridg­ing the tech­nol­o­gy gap in gen­der and diver­si­ty from live TV seg­ments to small-town news­pa­pers and every­thing in between, and are proud to have record num­bers of appli­cants in the pro­gram year after year.

Our own Bri­ana Grue­newald was also named a final­ist for the PRSA Young Pro­fes­sion­al of the Year Award. Bri­ana has an excep­tion­al track record in brand devel­op­ment, graph­ic design, media rela­tions, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and pro­mo­tions, which she puts into action with clients includ­ing Explore Min­neso­ta Tourism, Sec­ond Har­vest Heart­land, Fuel Up to Play 60, Girls on the Run-Twin Cities, MHTA Foun­da­tion and more. Bri­ana has served on the mar­ket­ing com­mit­tee for the Min­neso­ta Inter­ac­tive Mar­ket­ing Asso­ci­a­tion (MIMA), vol­un­teers with Three­Six­ty Jour­nal­ism and serves as a men­tor with Art Bud­dies.

We are proud of the strong part­ner­ships we have with all of our clients, and we’re so pleased to be rec­og­nized by our peers for the great work we do. Thank you!
