The DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Awards are given to members of RCC who demonstrate excellence in religious communication and public relations. The RCC, founded in 1929, is an association of religion communicators who work in print and electronic communication, media, marketing and public relations. Faculty members from the Journalism and Mass Communications Department at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, were responsible for judging the projects of religion communication professionals across the country.
