The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) recently announced the 2022-2023 Spotlight on Excellence Winners, and CHELCO received a “Silver” award in the “Best Video” category for their “Who is CHELCO” video. 

Each year, the NRECA recognizes the outstanding work produced by electric cooperative communication and marketing professionals from across the country. The 18 categories reflect the wide scope and valuable contributions of co-op communicators today, and entrants are judged against cooperatives of a similar size. This marks the third consecutive year CHELCO has received a Spotlight on Excellence Award.

The winning video highlights the many things CHELCO does, the dedication of their employees and their commitment to their members and the community. The video can be viewed at the top of the homepage at
