Monty Awards (Photos)

The BlackRock Center for the Arts served as the backdrop for the 2012 Monty awards on Nov. 18.

A “Night in the Spotlight” was the theme for the 2012 volunteer recognition event and awards ceremony hosted by Don Mooers.

“As we look back on the year, it’s been one of great progress and success; the relaunch of the new website, additional high definition capability, and the winning of MCM’s first ever award from the Alliance for Community Media as the best Public, Education and Government organization in the country,” wrote Merlyn Reineke, MCM’s executive director, in the event’s program. “None of these achievements would have been possible without the efforts of volunteers, producers, technicians, bloggers and many others who serve alongside MCM dedicated staff.”

Awards were presented in a variety of categories, including arts and humanities, backpack and citizen journalism, class project, community, educational, ethnic, health and science, host, inspirational, music production, presenter, promos and PSAs, public affairs, sports, viewer’s choice and youth. Here’s a list of the winners and below some photos of the evening.
