Tell Your Story & Inspire Support

The 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.

“I wasn’t really sure what the impact would be, but we have gotten a lot of mentor requests to become a mentor, which our whole program is one-on-one mentoring. So that’s been phenomenal. And then we’ve had some funders call us just seeking information and wanting to know more about us.”

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 invites you to tell your story during the 8th 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.

“As a recipient of a Be More Award, we have been able to leverage our win into a truly significant triumph for our organization.”

“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.”
