This year’s NETA Award winners were chosen by panels of judges working in specific disciplines at public television stations, national public media organizations and related professional associations.
The NETA Awards are an annual recognition of public broadcasting’s finest work, a tradition established in the 1960s by the pioneering Southern Educational Communications Association from which NETA was formed. NETA is a professional association organized in 1997 to serve and support public television licensees and affiliated educational organizations. The organization has member stations in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
