Gold Medal Award for Community Service:
What new and innovative initiatives did your radio or television station support this past year?  We want to hear about what happened in your community and the impact of your team's effort.  We have appreciated reviewing nominations in the past of initiatives that have been well-established and stood the test of time in your markets, and will continue to review them - BUT our board is giving strong weight in judging the entries to ideas that are new, unique and creative.

Under Radio, your station is able to apply under one of the 2 categories:

- Market size under 150,000
- Market size 150,000 & up

Under Television, nominations will not be judged separately by market size.

Gold Medal Award for Digital Innovation:
What new and innovative initiatives did your station execute either on digital platforms and or by deploying digital in support of radio or television activities? Share your new ideas, innovations and 'wins' worth celebrating in your respective digital activities. These can be community focused, station focused, promotion, programming or news and information.

Need ideas? Consider the following Digital initiatives from your station!

- a new station website design
- a interactive add on experience
- digital revenue program
- a promo or contest with a significant digital component
- content that went viral

Examples of media releases pertaining to that initiative or program along with samples of media coverage may also be submitted in support of your entry.

The entry should cover only a single initiative or program that the member station has undertaken in the past year rather than covering multiple initiatives or programs.
