Each year the Texas Veterans Commission presents its Excellence in Media awards to recognize works in media published or presented during the preceding year that have been exemplary in researching, reporting, writing and/or production to foster public understanding on veterans’ issues. Awards seek to recognize publications and programs that meet one or more of these objectives:
- Educate the public about the issues affecting veterans in Texas and/or their families;
- Encourage public support for veterans’ programs or inform the public about current veterans’ program.
The next media awards nomination period will be announced later this year. It is free to submit a nomination.
