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!

Heading into its 25th 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.


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

The awards were co-presented by the Baton Rouge Rotary Club. For more information, call 225-767-4274 or email heroes@lpb.org.

The 2019 Louisiana Young Heroes got to meet each other for the first time yesterday evening when they created Baskets of Hope for children battling serious illnesses.
