To be considered for a media sponsorship your organization must be a non-profit or community service organization. Organizations chosen for a media sponsorship will receive 30 announcements promoting an event in exchange for promotional consideration for the Community Idea Stations. Our Media Sponsorship Committee will determine the winning applications based on those that most closely align with our mission, impact goals and audiences. Organizations are limited to receiving a maximum of one media sponsorship per year.
