The Polly Bond Awards were established in the mid-1970s by Episcopal Communicators to acknowledge excellence and achievement in the ministry of church communication. They are awarded annually at the Episcopal Communicators meeting for a variety of categories. When Polly Bond, director of communications in the Diocese of Ohio, was stricken with terminal cancer, Episcopal Communicators unanimously decided to dedicate the awards to her memory. She participated in the original guidelines for the awards at her last Episcopal Communicators meeting, even when she knew she was dying.
