About the Honors

The Television Academy created the Television Academy Honors in 2008 to recognize "Television with a Conscience" — achievements in programming that explore issues of concern to our society in a compelling, emotional and insightful way. Programming and programmers who enlighten and educate, create awareness and motivate positive change on important social and health issues will be honored.

The Tenth Television Academy Honors will be held in June 2017 (date and location TBD).
