The Starr Conspiracy and Fort Worth, Texas — A Love Affair

The Starr Conspiracy celebrated the 2014 American Advertising Awards last week and were proud to take home 22 awards, including Best of Show Interactive and the association's first People's Choice Awards. See the press release below if you want to learn more.

Local events as a team regularly remind us of why we love the city of Fort Worth. As an agency, we are quite active in the local community — volunteering at a nearby elementary school, the county food bank, participating in our neighbor's events, supporting the arts, and more. Our agents also participate individually in Fort Worth's vibrant community in many ways — several of our agents are in bands and music projects, several have started local meetups and interest groups, and I'm almost certain all of us (even the transplants) have been to the rodeo a time or two.

To celebrate what we love about Fort Worth, we wanted to round up some local flavor from the blog's past — this isn't everything we've written about our beloved city, but it's a start. Take a peek at why we love Fort Worth.
