Over the past year, so many stations have sent us stories highlighting their top-notch community service. Whether it's Hurricane Sandy, a St. Judes Radiothon, or money raised for the American Red Cross, radio was out front moving listeners to action to help local communities. Now is the time to be recognized for all that hard work.

The NAB will accept entries for the 2013 NAB Crystal Radio Awards, honoring outstanding community service, beginning January 1, 2013. Established in 1987, the Crystal Radio Awards recognize radio stations for their year-round commitment to service to their communities.

To enter, a station must submit their online entry describing their community service efforts for the 2012 calendar year. Fifty Crystal Radio Awards finalists and 10 winners are chosen by judges with broadcast and community service backgrounds. Entry information is available on NAB's website or by calling NAB's Melek Demir at 202-775-3511.

Entry submissions must be received by January 31. The Crystal Radio Awards finalists will be revealed on February 25. Winners will be announced and the finalists will be honored at the NAB Radio Luncheon. The Luncheon, sponsored by ASCAP, will be held Tuesday, April 9 during the 2013 NAB Show in Las Vegas.
