The Trustees Awards is the highest honor that the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences bestows on an individual. Established in 1957, it was presented for the first time as part of the Tenth Annual Awards telecast on April 15, 1958

The Trustees Award is a special award. It was created to remove the confinement of category–defined awards by allowing the Trustees to acknowledge and to honor unusual or enduring achievements or contributions to the arts and sciences of television. There is no limit to the number of Trustees Awards which may be given in any year, nor is there any requirement that the Trustees make such a presentation each year. The Trustees Award traditionally includes a citation which gives the reason for the presentation of this special honor
