Established in 1983, the Koa Anvil Awards captures and celebrates the four rings of excellence for which the Koa Anvil competition is judged: research, planning, execution, and evaluation. It is the competition to develop better plans, use creativity to produce better results, increase professional skill to produce the best public relations programs and tools that keep the professional motivated and moving forward.
The Hawaii Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) conducts the annual Koa Anvil Awards competition to recognize outstanding public relations programs and tactics, and to encourage improved public relations performance and techniques.
