See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Effective the week of September 26, 2010, NBC and its affiliates launched the "Education Nation" campaign. It is a nationally broadcast, in-depth conversation that seeks to engage the public, through thoughtful dialogue, in pursuit of the shared goal of providing every American with an opportunity to pursue the best education in the world, especially our children. During an interactive summit on Rockefeller Plaza, parents, teachers, and students come together with leaders in politics, business, and technology to discuss the challenges and opportunities in education today. In addition, NBC turned Rockefeller Plaza into a "Learning Plaza," open to the public, which allowed visitors to explore America's educational "ecosystem."

The recipient is profiled during the sports segment of our six o'clock newscast, September through the first week of June.
