StoryCorps and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum have won a 71st Annual George Foster Peabody Award for work commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The award recognizes the work of the "September 11th Initiative," a joint effort by StoryCorps and the Memorial and Museum to record at least one spoken remembrance of each of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attacks of Feb. 26, 1993 and Sept. 11, 2001. Family members and close friends of the victims record the remembrances, which will be part of the 9/11 Memorial Museum's "In Memoriam."
