Prepare Those 2021 Service to America Awards Entries Early


There is no denying that 2020 has been a tough year. At the intersection of compounded crises, our communities looked to broadcast TV and radio stations to provide critical updates, reports and resources.

“While 2020 challenged us, you and your team demonstrated the importance of local broadcasting and what it means to give back,” the NAB says.

As this year concludes, the NAB Leadership Foundation is asking you to telling your station’s story during the 2021 Celebration of Service to America Awards.

“We encourage you to take this time to reflect on your station’s community service efforts and how you kept your communities safe, heard and informed,” the NAB says.

The 2021 Celebration of Service to America Awards call for entries will open in early January.

What you’ll need for your application:

  • Description explaining how your campaign or project impacted your local community
  • A five-minute video (for television stations) or audio (for radio stations) file showcasing the impact you made
  • Entry fee of $150 for each entry you submit (stations can submit more than one entry)

The 2021 Celebration of Service to America Awards will be a televised program airing in early summer.
