History of the Golden Spike Awards

The Golden Spike Awards competition is an annual program sponsored by the Utah chapters of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Utah chapter, and the Utah Society for Healthcare Communication and Marketing (USHCAM).

The competition recognizes excellence and best practices in public relations and business communications in Utah. Judges select winning entries and award Golden Spikes or Awards of Merit based on scores in the categories of research, planning, execution and evaluation.
