These individuals have made a significant contribution to the television industry well above and beyond that required by their job. We honor their dedication and service to the industry, to NATAS, to the community and to people training for a career in the field.
Nominees answer to the highest standards of integrity and honor in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. Nominations are accepted from the performing, creative, technical or administrative roles within the industry or in peripheral areas directly related to television such as commercial production, journalism or education. Neither nominators nor nominees need to be members of NATAS. The Gold & Silver Award Committee reviews all nominees past and present to make a recommendation to the NATAS-Upper Midwest Board of Governors.
