Media Award

 
The NHCA Media Award was established in 1993 to recognize the efforts of writers and/or producers of news features that serve to heighten public awareness of the hazards of noise.  It is also available to NHCA members who take the time and effort to bring hearing conservation related issues into public light.  Nominations for this award may be from non-NHCA members, and NHCA members are encouraged to nominate themselves.
