Backbone Media Awarded Bulldog Digital/Social PR Achievement Award

Backbone Media (www.backbonemedia.net) announced that the Polartec Made Possible College Challenge, now in its third year, has been recognized as one of the top digital/social communication campaigns of the year by Bulldog Reporter. The Polartec Made Possible contest and Facebook application won Bulldog Digital’s "Silver" award, alongside Microsoft, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, and Wal-Mart, among others.
