LPB Do YOU know a Young Hero? There may be one in your neighborhood, in your classroom – or even your own home.

Louisiana Young Heroes do not come from a cookie cutter - no two are alike. We have had Young Heroes who have overcome physical challenges. There have been Young Heroes who have saved lives. Some Young Heroes come from difficult beginnings but rewrite their stories. Great talent or academic success belong to many Young Heroes. One word describes each of them: inspirational!

All nominees must be in grades 7 through 12 and enrolled in a Louisiana public, private or parochial school, or home-schooled - and cannot be older than 19 years of age.
