NOMINATION DEADLINE EXTENDED FOR 2018 LOUISIANA YOUNG HEROES AWARDS

The deadline for entries has been extended to February 12, 2018.


NOMINATION DEADLINE EXTENDED FOR 2018 LOUISIANA YOUNG HEROES AWARDS
LPB and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge are looking for the 2018 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 23rd year, the Louisiana Young Hero Awards annually honor students in grades 7-12 who excel in the classroom, serve their local communities, and sometimes demonstrate great personal courage in overcoming adversity.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Louisiana Young Heroes. Students must be enrolled in a Louisiana school (public, private or parochial) or home-schooled, and cannot be older than 19 years of age. Nomination forms can be downloaded and filled out or submitted through the online form at lpb.org/heroes. Letters of recognition, newspaper articles, and other supporting materials should be sent to support the nomination. Previous winners are not eligible. The deadline for entries has been extended to February 12, 2018. Winners will be announced on LPB’s weekly news and public affairs program Louisiana: The State We’re In and lpb.org on February 23, 2018 at 7PM. Louisiana Young Heroes Day will be Monday, April 16, 2018. The Young Heroes will be treated to a day full of activities in Baton Rouge, including a number of surprises.
