LPB A lot of attention is given to the young people who get into trouble or underachieve in school, but often the students who do exceptionally well in the classroom or make a huge difference in their community do not receive the recognition they deserve. That’s why LPB and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge created the Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. Now in its 20th year, the awards honor students in grades 7-12 who have excelled in the classroom, served their community or shown great courage in overcoming adversity in their own lives.

Nominations are now being taken for the 2015 Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. Students must be enrolled in a Louisiana school (public, private or parochial) or homeschooled and cannot be older than 19 years of age.

Some of our former Young Heroes have overcome physical handicaps, raised money for charity, cared for family members, assisted hurricane victims, and even saved lives.

Nomination forms can be downloaded from this page or submitted through the online form – the link is also on this page. Letters of recognition, newspaper articles, copies of awards, and other supporting materials should be sent to support the nomination. Remember – the panel of judges get to know the student solely through the material submitted with the application.

Students who have been nominated in past years may be re-nominated for this year’s awards. Previous winners are not eligible. The deadline for entries is February 6, 2015. Winners will be announced on the air and on the LPB website on Friday, March 6, 2015.

Louisiana Young Heroes Day will be Monday, April 27, 2015. The Young Heroes will be treated to a day full of activities including lunch on the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion. The day will culminate in a banquet that night in Baton Rouge.

The awards are co-presented by the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge.
