The Virginias AP Broadcasters group is an independent association comprised of local radio and television members of The Associated Press from throughout Virginia and West Virginia.
The group honors important broadcast journalism through our annual awards contest. Four divisions compete in nearly 30 categories. The divisions include Television I (Large Market), Television II (Small Market), Radio I (Metro) and Radio II (Non-Metro).
The VAPB offers two annual $2000 scholarships to students pursuing a degree in broadcast journalism. The students must be enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies at a college or university in Virginia or West Virginia at the time of the application deadline. The VAPB Scholarship Committee will select one student from a West Virginia school and one from a Virginia school among all qualified applications received by the deadline.
