The National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) recognized public media’s achievements with the 54th Annual Public Media Awards (PMA) held at the 2022 NETA Conference and CPB Public Media Thought Leader Forum on September 18, 2022.

The Public Media Awards, presented by NETA, honor public media stations' work in the highest caliber community engagement, content, education, marketing and communications. 

Georgia Public Broadcasting's education division received two Public Media Awards this year. Georgia Peanuts Live Exploration, a live virtual event highlighting the state's robust peanut industry, took home the "Learning Events" award in the education category. Georgia Public Broadcasting was also awarded "Overall Excellence in Education."

"We are so honored to have received two Public Media Awards this year," said Laura Evans, Director of Education at Georgia Public Broadcasting. "Our team's innovation, creativity, and dedication to provide high-quality educational resources to teachers, students, and families across Georgia are reflected in our recognition as the winner of Overall Excellence in Education."

Awards are judged by a group of expert panelists from within the public media system, as well as industry professionals working outside of public media.
