Well, It’s About Time to Hate the Girl Scouts…for Political Endorsements?

Typically, around this time of the year, people are avoiding storefronts and grocery stores because the Girl Scouts are out pimping its Samoas, Do-Si-Dos, Thin Mints and other sinful cookies.

Evian has chosen Syndicate Media Group as its U.S. AOR handling public relations and social media work. According to the press release, the RFP included three other firms who were asked how they would have operated given a set of real Evian initiatives. Or, they were asked to propose new campaigns. Syndicate chose the latter. The firm will be working with the other Evian agencies – MKG, MPG/Mediacontacts, and Euro RSCG — and work will begin in the fourth quarter.

The Girl Scouts have chosen Edelman to lead its centennial PR efforts in 2012. The firm’s work will include media relations, consumer engagement, social media and issues management surrounding topics of importance to girls.
