COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, a national nonprofit organization promoting awareness of and resources for foster care adoption, has received prestigious awards for several of its public service campaigns. 

Last week, the Foundation received a first place award for its video I Am at the TechSoup 2012 Digital Storytelling Challenge, presented in San Francisco. The video was chosen from more than 250 submissions from social benefit organizations in 24 countries, and was selected by a panel of digital storytelling experts from across the country. The I Am series was produced by Columbus, Ohio-based Ologie. 

At the Columbus ADDY awards in February, the I Am poster series won a gold award, and the entire I Am awareness campaign won a silver award. 

In March, the Foundation’s video, Unadoptable is Unacceptable, won a gold ADDY award for electronic broadcast at the American Federation of Advertising ADDY awards. The video was created and produced by Washington, D.C. based GMMB to highlight the Foundation’s child-focused adoption recruitment program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids.
