[PW] Stumper: Beautiful Sounding Word Award

Greetings,

Is anyone aware of a group that selects one beautiful sounding word in the English language each year for an award?  A patron believes that there was such an award at one time and recalls that about 10 years ago the word "pavement" was the winner.  Apparently the meaning does not matter, the criteria is how it sounds.  I've found lists of the "most beautiful words in the English language" on many sites, but nothing that is awarded yearly based on the sound of the word alone.

Thanks for your help!
