Searching for Louisiana’s Young Heroes of 2019

Do you know a Louisiana student in grades 7-12 who is a HERO – an exceptional young person who has excelled in academics, given significantly of themselves through public service, overcome adversity, or inspired others through their deeds and strength of character? If so, nominate that student to be recognized as a 2019 Louisiana Young Hero, by Louisiana Public Broadcasting and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge. This year’s honorees will receive a $1,000 tuition assistance grant and other special honors.

Nominees must be Louisiana students enrolled in an academic institution or homeschool program, who are not more than age 18.
