The Olives Awards Go Green!

Publish date:

Sound Lounge Radio's 4th Annual Olives Radio Awards are back and with an environmental twist. This year, writers submitting scripts in a new "GREEN PSA Category" have the chance of actually hearing their spot on the radio. The Olives are buying airtime on stations across the country for the Grand Prize-winning spot -- and to help spread an eco-friendly word.
