USRA Corporate Website Wins the Davey Award

Columbia, MD--March 20, 2019. Kudos to Universities Space Research Association for winning the "Davey" Award for its corporate websiite.  The International Davey Awards are the largest and most prestigious awards exclusively given to small companies.

The Davey Award is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a "Who’s Who" of acclaimed media, advertising and marketing firms. The Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts members include executives from organizations such as Conde Nast, Disney, General Electric, Crescent, Microsoft, Monster.com, MTV, Sesame Workshops, Yahoo! and many others.

The awards are "named after David in the David and Goliath story—just as David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock, several small agencies do the same by deriving their strength from big ideas rather than big budgets."
