Tell Your Story & Inspire Support

The WEDU Be More Awards were created to pay tribute to the many unsung heroes in the community served by WEDU – the area’s leading PBS station and public media company. Each year, this multifaceted program celebrates the human spirit and showcases the best work by nonprofit organizations, the individuals that support them – and WEDU.

"We appreciate everything WEDU does for the local community. To have an opportunity to meet those who were directly involved was stellar. The Hall of Heroes was excellent. We had a chance to network and learn about other nonprofits that we can support in the future. Can’t wait for next year – you never know – it might be our year in 2015. Thank you."

Now, more than ever, local nonprofit organizations are essential in our community. You are pioneering new ways to serve, educate, and broaden new horizons. WEDU PBS invites you to tell your story during the 10th Annual WEDU Be More Awards. Inspire support for your organization as we highlight the best works from area nonprofits as part of an award winning, nationally-recognized, and multi-media supported event.

“We definitely feel grateful and honored to be chosen this year. Just looking at the list of organizations who submitted for the awards is amazing. There are so many groups doing wonderful work out there in a 16-county area.”
