About Louisiana Young Heroes »»»

A Young Hero can be defined in many ways, but to those who know them they are exceptional students who devote their time, talents, and energy to make a difference!

Now in its 24th year, the LPB Louisiana Young Hero Awards, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge, annually honors students in grades 7-12 who excel in the classroom, serve their local communities, and sometimes demonstrate great personal courage in overcoming adversity.

Winners will be announced on LPB’s weekly news and public affairs program Louisiana the State We’re In, on the Louisiana Young Heroes Facebook page, and at lpb.org. Louisiana Young Heroes Day will be in April of 2019.

The Young Heroes will be treated to a day full of activities including breakfast at LPB’s studios, lunch at the Old Governor’s Mansion, and a number of surprises. The day will culminate with a banquet that night at the Renaissance Hotel in Baton Rouge.

The awards are co-presented by the Baton Rouge Rotary Club. For more information, call Kathy Scherer at (800) 272-8161, ext. 4274 or (225) 767-4274 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
