Manassas, VA – Focus on the Family will receive the NRB Best Television Commercial Award during the February 26th Television Reception at the NRB Convention & Exposition.

“Focus on the Family captured the spotlight during SuperBowl XLIV with Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mother,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.  “Their commercial brought the discussion of the sanctity of life into living rooms around the world—and resulted in at least one child being spared from abortion.”

Focus on the Family is a global Christian ministry dedicated to helping families thrive. They provide help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design, and for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles.

The NRB Best Television Commercial Award is presented to a commercial that is creative, innovative, and memorable, and that effectively engages the audience by using the television medium from artistic, technical, and communicative standpoints.
