Since 1967, the national branch of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) has held an Image Awards show, a presentation honoring outstanding people of color in various fields (e.g. film, sports, etc.). Since 2011, the WVU NAACP has mimicked our national branch and has hosted this award show, at WVU, to recognize student, faculty, staff, and organizations on campus who have achieved much, as well as, worked to help uplift the WVU community. The person or organization who receives an NAACP Image Award has, in some fashion, embodied the goals and mission of the NAACP. Voting ends on March 8th, 2016!
