The SPARK and The SPARK Awards


WKNO’s The SPARK is a monthly half-hour interview program highlighting efforts in community service and technological and collaborative innovation by nonprofits, corporations, local businesses, and educational organizations. The SPARK is produced in partnership with cityCURRENT, a privately-funded organization comprised of local businesses focused on media along with philanthropy and volunteerism to provide a positive influence in the Mid-South. The SPARK Awards is an annual presentation honoring achievement in thirteen categories nominated by the public and judged by an independent committee.
