LPB

(LPB & PBS will soon have the second season of Poldark. Revisit the exciting first season!)

Tonight at 7PM, Antiques Roadshow reassesses items first appraised in San Francisco in 1998. One item that has risen in value is a modest-looking Eskimo hunting helmet.

Then at 10, take a nostalgic trip nack to the 1960's and 70's with a reunion of eight legendary garage bands in Cornerstones of Rock: A Soundstage Special.

Saturday night at 8:30 in Rhythm & Blues 40: A Soul Spectacular, legendary artists of the 60's and 70's are brought together for a once-in-a-lifetime event. At 10:30 in 50 Years with Peter, Paul & Mary, relive many of the trios best performances.

PLEASE RECOGNIZE THE HEROIC YOUTH YOU KNOW

LPB

Every day on the news, we hear stories about teenagers getting into trouble, or causing problems in school. Rarely are the students who do exceptionally well academically or who make huge contributions to worthy causes or help improve their communities recognized. That’s why LPB and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge created the Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. The awards honor students in grades 7-12 who have excelled in the classroom, served their community, and/or shown great courage in overcoming adversity in their own lives. You probably know students who helped their families, friends, schools, or communities during or after the floods.

Nominations are now being taken for the 2017 Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. Students must be enrolled in a Louisiana school (public, private or parochial) or home-schooled, and cannot be older than 19 years of age. Some of our former Young Heroes have overcome physical handicaps, endured emotional hardships, worked tirelessly for charity, cared for family members, assisted hurricane victims, and even saved lives.

Nomination forms can be downloaded and filled out or submitted through the online form. Follow Louisiana Young Heroes on Facebook. Previous winners are not eligible. The deadline for entries is February 1, 2017.

Winners will be announced on the air and on the LPB website on February 10, 2017. Louisiana Young Heroes Day will be Monday, April 10, 2017.

For more information, call Margaret Schlaudecker at (800) 272-8161, ext. 4276 or (225) 767-4276 or email heroes@lpb.org.
