The award carries with it a $1000 grant from the LCTA to be given by the recipient to a non-profit organization in their community. A written description of the project must be provided. A video is optional, but if done, submit only one copy.

III. Customer Service Award

Established in 1990, this award recognizes cable systems that have excelled in providing high quality, innovative customer service throughout their franchise areas. A total of six (6) awards may be given, based upon the size of systems submitting entries.
