I had the chance to travel throughout Minnesota and prepare a series of videos for the Economic Development Association of Minnesota's 2013 Excellence in Economic Development Awards Program.

The Economic Development Association of Minnesota (EDAM) has an awards program each year. In previous years during the award presentation, they put up some photos of the winning projects. This year, they wanted to do a video for each award to let the winners tell their own story for the 2013 Excellence in Economic Development Awards. They not only used the videos at the awards ceremony, they allowed the winners to use the videos for their own marketing efforts as well. Additionally, EDAM was able to post the videos to their own website.

This was a great project. I really enjoyed talking with the different winners about their projects and hearing about the great things happening in Minnesota!

There were six award categories:

Best Business Retention and Expansion Award
Shoreview Economic Development Authority
Best Business Recruitment Initiative Award
City of St. Cloud for the Geringhoff project
Best Economic Development Initiative Award
Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development for the Angel Tax Credit Program
Best Economic Development Marketing Award
Hutchinson Economic Development Authority for its economic development marketing campaign “Hutchinson, Minnesota’s Manufacturing City.”
Best Redevelopment Project Award
St. Louis Park Economic Development Authority for the Tower Light on Wooddale Avenue project.
Partnership Award
St Paul Port Authority, Sherburne County, Minnesota Department of Commerce and the Central Minnesota Initiative Foundation for the Liberty Paper project.

You can views all of the videos on the EDAM YouTube Channel or watch them below.
