The one-hour special honors ordinary Louisianans doing extraordinary things for children.

Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB) in partnership with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, presents The Angel Award®, a one-hour special.

After receiving a record number of nominations this year, the Angel Award® was presented to nine everyday Louisianans who are working to make life better for the state’s children. The honorees come from across Louisiana, from Baton Rouge to Benton and New Orleans to Lake Charles. The program features segments on each of the honorees that showcase their work and allow viewers to see first-hand the impact that work has on children.

“For the second straight year, we are excited to partner with the Blue Cross Foundation on this special,” says Jason Viso, LPB’s Director of Programming. “It’s important to amplify the contributions Louisianans have made to our state, and The Angel Award is a great example of that. We hope viewers will see the impact they have made, and feel inspired to make a difference themselves.”

“Since 1995, the Foundation has recognized more than 200 Angels across the state. This program has been a springboard for many nonprofits to reach new heights. We are pleased and grateful to LPB for working with us to honor these exceptional individuals,” said Michael Tipton, president of the Blue Cross Foundation.
