RTNDF Michael Monty Memorial Award - Deadline April 8th

March 30, 2011 - RTNDF Canada invites nominations for the Michael Monty Memorial Award.

The Michael Monty Memorial Award will be presented to a broadcast educator nominated by students for special recognition.

Applications must be in writing and should be forwarded to the RTNDA Office by mail, email or fax. You can email info@rtndacanada.com or FAX at (416) 491-1670.
