VolusiaTPO Telly Award

Daytona Beach, August 30, 2010 — A video produced by WDSC-TV Channel 15 for the Volusia Transportation Planning Organization (VolusiaTPO) — formerly the Volusia County Metropolitan Planning Organization — has won a 31st Annual Telly Award.

The VolusiaTPO’s Walk and Ride Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety Video was selected for a Bronze Telly Award in the Safety Category from over 13,000 entries submitted from all 50 states and 5 continents. Volunteers and personnel from the Volusia County School District, Port Orange Police Department and Volusia County Sheriff’s Office contributed to the making of the video, which was funded by a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation’s Safe Routes to School Program.

The Telly Awards was founded in 1978 by entrepreneur David E. Carter. It is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, Internet commercials, film and video productions. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments in the world.
