We have established this award in the name of our former colleague and leader in the field of entertainment-education. Everett M. Rogers' lifetime of contributions significantly raised standards for producing appealing and effective media to enhance the quality of people's lives, and for conducting research to discover how these productions can best achieve intended outcomes.
