20/04/2018

NAB Education Foundation Announces 2018 Service to America Award Winners WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation (NABEF) announced today the winners of the 2018 Celebration of Service to America Awards, recognizing outstanding community service by local broadcasters. Winners will be honored at the Celebration of Service to America dinner, held Tuesday, June 12 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.

Local broadcasters play a crucial role in informing, supporting and strengthening communities across our country, said NABEF President Marcellus Alexander. This year's winners represent the ethos of broadcasting and the industry's unwavering commitment to public service. We look forward to honoring these outstanding stations in the nation's capital.

The awards program, now in its 20th year, has established new categories based on market size. The awards will honor the following broadcasters:

Presidents Special Award

The NABEF President's Special Award recognizes historic and extraordinary achievement by an individual broadcast station or group of broadcasters.

In recognition of broadcasters' service to their local communities before, during and after historic hurricanes and wildfires in 2017, broadcasters in Florida, Puerto Rico, Texas, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as those in California, Montana, Oregon and Washington, will receive special honors. Broadcasters nationwide will also receive recognition for their support of local communities during these natural disasters.

TEGNA, Selling Girls

Upon asking viewers in all 38 of its television markets what they thought was the most underreported story, TEGNA created a six-part series that highlights the complex problem of child sex trafficking. Stories included crime data analysis, court records and scrutinization of the sometimes-inconsistent sentencing guidelines carried out by lawmakers. All TEGNA news operations across the country produced investigations on how child sex trafficking was affecting their local community. The series is now being used for education and training by organizations such as the U.S. State Department, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, The United Way, the Jimmy Carter Center, and the South Carolina Air National Guard, as well as several schools and individual professors.

KJLH created the Womens Health Expo to address the high rates of obesity, heart disease and breast cancer in the African American community.

For some of the women in the community, the expo is their only opportunity to receive free mammograms, diabetes and blood pressure screenings, and HIV/AIDS testing. The Womens Health Expo was created 18 years ago in a small church as a resource for women to receive proper health care and has grown to host thousands of women in the Los Angeles and Long Beach Convention Centers.
