2016–17 Media Honor Roll

The Media Honor Roll recognizes representatives in print, radio, television, and electronic media who (1) make the effort to get to know the superintendent, board president, and district’s mission and goals; (2) report school news in a manner that is fair, accurate, and balanced; (3) give a high-profile position to good news about schools; (4) visit the schools; and (5) maintain a policy of no surprises by sharing information with school representatives.

Submit names online

If you work with reporters or news organizations that deserve recognition, your district can add their names to the honor roll. Submit the names of radio or television stations, newspapers, online publications, or individual reporters. Complete and submit the online nomination form for each individual or organization you want to recognize. Submission deadline for this year is May 31, 2017.

Receive certificates by mail

In mid-July, a personalized certificate for each name submitted and a sample media release to forward to local news outlets will be mailed to your superintendent. The online sample resolution can be used to make a certificate presentation to each honoree.

Honored media will be posted on the TASB website in late July.
