Rocky Mountain Radio Council Institutional Award for Outstanding Education Program

Rocky Mountain Radio Council

(Honorable Mention) Organized in 1939, the Rocky Mountain Radio Council has, during the past decade, demonstrated most effectively how broadcasters utilizing the unlimited resources of colleges, schools, libraries, women’s clubs, farm groups and the like, can be of great public service. Brought into being to unite two powerful interests—commercial radio and education—with the objective of mutual growth and significance, this Council has done much to lift education on the air to a higher level of effectiveness, and commercial broadcasting to a similar high level of public interest and service. In recognition, thereof, this special George Foster Peabody Citation for outstanding service in educational broadcasting is presented.
