The Golden Spike Awards competition, sponsored by the Utah chapters of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), annually honors Utah organizations and teams that demonstrate excellence in public relations practices and business communications. This year, the external relations office of the College of Fine Arts and Communications was recognized for their work on Sacred Sounds: Can Music Heal the Religious Divide?

Sacred Sounds was an interdisciplinary exhibition curated by Maddie Blonquist, who graduated in 2018 with a double major in music and humanities. The project investigated the musical sounds used in worship in the three Abrahamic religions—Christianity, Judaism and Islam—and led to the creation of BYU’s first interfaith club. The external relations office worked alongside Blonquist and her collaborators to produce multimedia content promoting the exhibit and highlight the positive community impact of the project. 

Sacred Sounds: Can Music Heal the Religious Divide? was a finalist in the Community Relations, Print Communications and Videos categories, and won the award for Community Relations.
