ATLANTA – The Georgia Lottery Corp. has won an Emmy Award for its television special “Georgia Salutes America.” The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Southeast Chapter presented the award Saturday in the category of Television Programming Excellence: Special Event Coverage – Live.

James Hutchinson, Georgia Lottery senior vice president of marketing and product development, was recognized with the award.

“Georgia Salutes America” aired on WSB-TV and on television stations statewide July 4, 2012.

The special recognized the United States Armed Forces as a way of saying ‘Thank You’ to military troops and to Georgians.

The award is the second Emmy the Georgia Lottery has won.

All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program.
