Mondo Mediaworks didn’t take home the top prize at the 2013 Vermont Travel Industry Conference. And Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin didn’t exactly present the award himself. But nevertheless, Mondo Mediaworks was humbled to receive honorable mention in the Governor’s SMART Biz Awards for Marketing Excellence in Social Media at the state-sponsored conference, held at the Stoweflake in Stowe, Vermont, on April 3, 2013.

Mondo, a Vermont marketing agency specializing in content development, received the award in recognition for the “Sh*t Snowboarders Say” video it produced for client Ride Vermont, a unit of the Vermont Ski Areas Association. The video went viral after its release, garnering hundreds of thousands of views and spiking traffic to

Mondo received honorable mention alongside Jay Peak resort’s “Moment{us}” marketing campaign. Ski Vermont took the top spot for its “Check in to Win” mobile campaign.

Flanked by Governor Shumlin and a few other official-looking people in suits, Vermont’s Commissioner of Tourism and Marketing, Megan Smith, announced the award at the conference. Mondo’s founder, Luke Q. Stafford, was handed the award a few hours later in the hallway.

“I guess I’ll have to meet the governor another time,” sighed Stafford. He then added, “maybe next year, when we take the top spot.”
