LOUISIANA YOUNG HEROES


DO YOU KNOW A YOUNG HERO?

Louisiana Public Broadcasting is proud to announce the 27th annual Louisiana Young Heroes program and statewide call for nominations for exemplary students in our state to be recognized as Louisiana Young Heroes in 2022. A Young Hero is defined as an exceptional young person who has excelled in academics, given significantly of themselves through public service, overcome adversity, exhibited extraordinary heroism, or inspired others through their deeds and strength of character. Parents, principals, teachers, guidance counselors, family, friends, and anyone who knows of high school students deserving of recognition for their tenacity, good work and commendable deeds, is encouraged to nominate them!

Nominees must be Louisiana students in grades 9-12, enrolled in an academic institution or homeschool program, and cannot be older than 18 years of age. Nominations and supporting materials should be submitted through the online form. The deadline for entries is Tuesday, March 1, 2022. (Previous winners are not eligible.)

The 2022 Louisiana Young Heroes 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 here in Spring 2022. The Louisiana Young Heroes will receive special awards and recognition for their achievements.

The Young Heroes recognized in 2022 will join the ranks of the almost 200 students who have been recognized as Louisiana Young Heroes since LPB founded the program in 1995.
