The National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation has announced that it is now accepting entries for the 2021 Celebration of Service to America Awards, recognizing outstanding community service by local broadcasters.
Eight Service to Community Awards will be presented, with one radio and one television honoree in each of the following categories: Large/Major Market (TV DMAs 1–50, radio markets 1–50); Medium Market (TV DMAs 51–100, radio markets 51150); and Small Market (TV DMAs 101210, radio markets 151–300).
The event won’t be a traditional ceremony at a location but rather a produced one hour program with “celebrity guests, past honorees and D.C. policymakers commending local radio and television stations from across the country for their exceptional commitment to public service and the extraordinary measures taken throughout 2020 to keep communities informed, supported and safe.” Award winners and finalist will also be honored during the event, to be available in the summer.
NAB members and nonmembers are eligible to enter. Entries must be submitted by March 5, at 11:59 p.m. PST. More specific details can be found here.
