About the E-Chievement Award

One of the show’s most popular segments is the E-Chievement Award. For two decades and counting, listeners from around the country continue to send in tales of remarkable individuals who are working hard to make a positive difference in their communities and beyond. From massive river clean-ups to programs that help the homeless, from neighborhood environmental activists to national social and environmental organizations, we take pride in celebrating the success stories of ordinary citizens accomplishing extraordinary things.

One step at a time. That’s how things change, that’s how problems are solved. That’s the message delivered each week, as we recognize people around the country who’ve found positive solutions to challenges in their communities. Each winner is nominated by a listener and joins us live, by phone or in person, to tell their personal story on the air.

Since 1991, eTown has presented hundreds of E-Chievement Awards with documented, positive results. Our winners have experienced greater funding for their non-profit efforts, additional contributions of resources, increased volunteer time, in-kind services, and so much more.

eTown has put thousands of listeners in touch with our award winners. Building community through E-Chievement Awards … it’s what the “e” in eTown is all about.
