IDEA Engagement Award

NCA Awards

The IDEA Engagement Award began in 2021 and offers recognition for efforts and activities to engage communities in work that enhances inclusion, diversity, equity, or access. Such engagement may be evaluated by the direct impacts or effects of such engagement (measured in different ways), or on sustainability and empowerment work that ensures change over the long term. This work may reflect the application of communication theories, pedagogy, or direct action to create positive community change.
