Clermont FAST TRAC Wins National Award

 The beautiful Windy City (Chicago) was the location for the Summer 2011 System of Care Community Training, July 19-21.  Clermont FAST TRAC brought a team of 15 to the conference, 6 of whom were parents and youth.  The training is a bi-annual gathering of current System of Care (SOC) grantees and provides the opportunity to learn more about how other SOCs are enhancing family-driven care, youth-guided care, cultural and linguistic competence, sustainability and evaluation efforts.    

During the training, ECCO Awards (Excellence in Community Communication and Outreach) are announced in several categories to highlight extraordinary social marketing efforts in a community.  Clermont County was nominated for an ECCO award for Media Outreach for Starr’s article. Clermont FAST TRAC was honored to receive “Bronze” level recognition for the article.  Click here for Starr*’s article.
