West Virginia Lottery Wins NASPL Award

CHARLESTON, W.Va.  – The West Virginia Lottery received a “Batchy Award” for the best Corporate Communications/Retailer Newsletter during last month’s North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) Convention in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The Lottery’s Progress Report provides an overview of product and operational information, sales, as well as information on how Lottery proceeds help support many great programs and beneficiaries in the State. This publication is created internally and distributed to retailers as well as to corporate accounts and the Legislature. “This award is a great honor and reflection of the integrity, hard work, and dedication of our staff,” West Virginia Lottery Director John Myers said. 

The NASPL Batchy Awards are named in honor of Ralph Batch who became the first president of NASPL in 1971 and was known as the “Dean of State Lottery Directors.” The Batchy Awards honor his memory by recognizing lottery advertising that achieves the level of excellence Batch upheld throughout his career. They are selected by a panel of peers and awards are given for 36 different advertising categories that range from the best use of humor in TV advertising and best radio advertising to internal communications.
