Big Ideas, Small Budgets: This category recognizes an effective campaign, event, process
or other effort that is unique because it was done in a particularly efficient, cost-effective way
while overcoming significant obstacles (either internal or external). Such projects might not
have been possible except for the application of new technology, processes, volunteer support
or external cooperation. Such a project should provide a quantifiable benefit to the agency
and/or its constituency well beyond its cost. For example, a heavily funded campaign to
change hunters' attitudes would not be appropriate in this category, but a grass-roots
campaign initiated by the agency and carried by hunter groups, volunteers and the media, at a
minimal cost, would be appropriate. Project must have been completed in the contest year.
Limit is three (3) entries, each consisting of three copies of all materials used in the effort.

 The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation’s
                 Take Me Fishing Outreach and Education Award

The Take Me Fishing Outreach and Education Award honors outstanding communications
efforts intended to encourage new participants to participate in recreational boating and/or
fishing. Entries must be for efforts completed in 2006, and they must focus on getting new
participants on the water in a safe, responsible and ethical manner. This award is intended
for an individual or group that uses communications strategies to target underrepresented
participants, such as Hispanics, African Americans, women, or people with disabilities.
Appropriate entries include posters, articles, press releases, videos, educational programs or
the like that use imagery, language, and/or an environment that speaks directly to an
underrepresented segment in boating and fishing. Entries should include a description of the
dissemination strategy, for example where the article was published or where the poster was
hung. In addition, please provide an account of how the program was evaluated and what
measures of success were used.

Please send entries to:

                                Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s


“Pass It On” Communications Award

       Dark thickets to explore. Riffling streams running past warm camps full of good friends.
Distant bugles at night; fresh tracking snow in the morning. These are among the legacies of
wild country, and important components in America’s outdoor heritage and lifestyles. Since its
inception in 1984, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has protected or enhanced more than
3.8 million acres – an area 50 percent larger than Yellowstone National Park – where this
heritage can live in perpetuity. The RMEF’s five-year “Pass It On” campaign is on track to
conserve 2 million additional acres by 2006, and engage a new generation of conservationists.
       The Elk Foundation recognizes excellence in communicating the personal and spiritual
values of America’s outdoors, thereby encouraging outdoor enthusiasts to pass those legacies
on to children and grandchildren.
       Entries must have been completed in 2006. They will be judged on clarity of message,
quality of presentation and relevance of topic. Entries are limited to one per person. Entries
may include print or video stories, news or features, as well as radio programs, PSA, or
graphics. Winners will be announced at the ACI annual summer meeting, and will receive a n
award from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Send entries to:
