WORCESTER, Mass. – The City of Worcester’s Cable Services Division was recently honored with three video awards from the Alliance for Community Media – Northeast at their fall video competition held in Burlington, Vermont, on November 16, 2023.

Cable Services received the following awards:
FIRST PLACE – Municipal/Government Programming – “Blue Space Minute – Boat Cleaning Stations”
This is the second award the Blue Space Minute has won since launching in March 2020. Although Jacquelyn Burmeister has moved from DPW&P, it should be noted that she and Jessica Jacques created interesting and creative videos to educate the public on the City’s waterways.
SECOND PLACE – Documentary – “Making of Worcester Tercentennial Marionettes with Guardians of Traditions & Creative Hub Worcester”
Shon Foley and Judith Warren produced a separate video presentation on the Marionettes that were created for the Tercentennial Anniversary of Worcester.

“It is an honor to be recognized by our peers in government & community media,” said Director of Cable Services Judith Warren. “I'm proud of my staff for not only bringing more transparency to government activities on a daily basis but doing it in creative and talented ways. These awards reinforce the importance of community media and its ability to inform people through Public, Education, and Government Access Television.”
