WVPB has won a national award for community engagement from the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA), which honors public media achievements nationwide. The award was presented during its 2021 NETA Conference and CPB (Corporation for Public Broadcasting) Public Media Thought Leader Forum. The Community Engagement National Project Award was presented to WVPB virtually during The 52nd Annual Public Media Awards (PMAs). The winning initiative was a statewide education outreach program targeting early readers. WVPB employees, friends, and volunteers – 200 people total – took one day, November 7, 2019, to read the same book to children in all 55 counties in West Virginia.

Read For The Record
WVPB partners with Jumpstart for the Read For the Record day. WVPB's goal is to have community engagement throughout the state of West Virginia by having at least one reading location in each of the 55 counties when the event starts. Read For The Record is an annual event occurring each Fall that aims to do the following among other things:
- Increase awareness of the importance of early literacy
- Make book accessible to children
Books selected for the event foster language and social-emotional engagement, honors diversity, and has a strong narrative that appeals to children. We value this partnership with Jumpstart and the community engagement that it provides the Mountain State!
