The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) is accepting entries for the 30th annual NAB Crystal Radio Awards, honoring outstanding community service. Winners are announced at the NAB Show Radio Luncheon, held Tuesday, April 25 in Las Vegas.
Established in 1987, the NAB Crystal Radio Awards bring national recognition to radio stations for their year-round commitment to serving communities. A panel of judges with backgrounds in broadcasting and community service select 50 finalists and 10 winners.
Awards are open to NAB Member Radio stations. Entries are due by January 31.
To enter, a station must submit an online entry form describing their community service efforts for the 2016 calendar year.
Finalists will be announced in February. In addition to the presentation of the Crystal Radio Awards, the NAB Show Radio Luncheon will include the induction of nationally-syndicated radio personality Delilah into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
In addition to the Crystal Awards, the entries for the NAB Educational Foundation (NABEF) Service to America Awards are being accepted through March 7, 2017. All radio and television stations and broadcast ownership groups are eligible to apply for Service to America Awards. More information here.
