Informational report on “Champions of Small City Management” award
competition sponsored by Pat Summerall Productions.
The City of Brentwood has been contacted by Pat Summerall Productions to
enter into a competition for their first “Champions of Small City
Management” award. The production company has sponsored the “Champions of
Industry” award for the past eight years.
If selected, a professional video will be filmed and produced by Pat
Summerall Productions. The City’s investment in production costs would be
$24,000. A 2-minute broadcast announcement will then be aired on CNN
Headline News, giving Brentwood national coverage. A 5-minute video will
also be produced, with editorial involvement from City staff, for the City’s
use as a promotional, marketing and communications tool. The 5-minute video
will be streamed on the Internet on the Forbes.com website, posted on
Industryview.com’s website and linked to our own City website. Each city
chosen will also be spotlighted in a “Best Managed Small Cities in America”
full page announcement in Forbes Magazine.
