NNPS-TV has earned three Hermes Creative Awards for outstanding school-related videos.

The videos created for Newport News Public Schools include a "State of the Schools" report, a promo about the Newport News Education Foundation, and an episode of NNPS-TV's weekly news show, "This Just In."

The Hermes Creative Awards, according to their website, "honors the messengers and creators of the information revolution....[who] bring their ideas to life through traditional and digital platforms."

The NNPS-TV team received one Platinum and two Gold awards. Their "NNPS State of the Schools 2021" video earned the highest honor, the Platinum award. The two Gold winners were "Newport News Education Foundation: Education is Everybody’s Business" and "This Just In #570: Week of January 25, 2021." That episode featured Greenwood and Yates elementaries' Bundle Up with Books and Riverside Elementary's Kindness Book Walk.

The NNPS-TV production team, which is made up of Station Manager Jim Anklam, Producer Nik Long, and Production Specialist Aaron Moore, created the videos.

The State of the Schools video was most complex in that it contained nearly 20 recorded comments from educators and students speaking on-camera. It took a number of months to schedule and record all of them.

Premiering on NNPS-TV Cox Channel 47/Verizon Fios Channel 17 on August 30, 2021, it took the place of a live event to ensure social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

NNPS-TV also won a Platinum and a Gold Hermes award in 2017.
