Corsicana Main Street’s New Faces, New Places video series wins Presidents Award and People’s Choice Award under 50k population
From Staff Reports
Winners of the 2022 President’s Awards Program were announced in San Marcos in conjunction with the Texas Downtown Conference. For over 35 years the awards program, sponsored by Texas Downtown (TXDT), has recognized outstanding projects, places, and people of Texas downtowns.
The goal of Corsicana Main Street’s New Faces, New Places video series is to enhance community engagement and raise awareness about new downtown businesses. In the last year and half, over 25 new businesses have opened in the downtown district. The campaign has had positive impact with business owners reporting an increase sales and foot traffic after their videos launched.
Texas Downtown was established in 1985 to connect and serve communities that are committed to downtown vitality. The mission of the organization is to provide members with resources, advocacy, education, and connections. Texas Downtown represents cities of all sizes, economic development organizations, nonprofits including chambers of commerce and merchant groups, and small business owners.
“It means so much to see Corsicana Main Street recognized on a state level for its accomplishments. This project would not have been possible without the partnership of RAD Designs and Legacy Recording Studio who helped produce the series. Great things are happening downtown and I look forward to a bright future on Main Street,” says Main Street Director, Amy Tidwell.
The judges for achievement entries were:
- Erika Boyd, Texas Travel Alliance
- Julie Glover, Downtown Consultant
- Danny Holeva, Arts Council of Midland
- Kris Larson, Central Houston
- Jordan Maddox, Halff Associates
