Washington, D.C. -- The National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation (NABLF) is now accepting entries for the 2024 Celebration of Service to America Awards. These prestigious awards recognize the critical role local radio and television stations play in their communities across the country.

The 2024 Celebration of Service to America Awards entry window will close on Monday, March 11, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

"The NAB Leadership Foundation strives to raise the visibility of local broadcasters and their unparallelled commitment to public service," said NAB Leadership Foundation President Michelle Duke. "We receive many stories about the incredible ways local radio and television stations engage with their listeners and viewers, from legal advocacy to fundraising to collecting essential supplies. Broadcasters are truly an integral part of their communities, and we are proud to honor them."

Winners from each category will be announced in early April, and they will receive their awards in person at the Celebration of Service to America Awards Gala in Washington, D.C., on June 4, 2024.
