Celebrate Your Community Service: Submit “Serving New York” Now!

Every year, NYSBA celebrates local broadcasters’ commitment to serving their communities. We also honor the public service groups that work with local stations to improve the quality of life in communities throughout the Empire State. We recognize commercial, non-commercial, and college stations for their efforts. Honorees receive the famous NYSBA Crystal Bowl.

To receive an award, stations should:

  • Submit a brief paragraph describing the campaign

    • The campaign may be on the air (PSA) or an off-air project

    • It may be a digital or traditional broadcast

    • Events or broadcast mays have occurred between September 1, 2022, and September 4, 2023

  • Provide the name of the public service group with which you worked

  • Provide a station logo and any photos

  • Provide the names of individuals attending the luncheon

Stations are encouraged to invite a public interest group with whom they worked during the past year. Attending representatives of your invited public interest groups will also be presented with an award.

We will present the “Serving New York” award at our regional awards luncheons this fall in Buffalo, Rochester, Binghamton, Syracuse, Albany, Long Island, and New York City.

Note these awards are different from the Excellence in Broadcasting Awards. However, we present both awards at the same luncheon.


Stations must be present at the luncheon to receive a Serving New York award!
