LPB IS LOOKING FOR OUR 2017 LOUISIANA YOUNG HEROES

LPB

You probably know students who helped their families, friends, schools, or communities during or after the floods. Some teens worked long and hard to help out. LPB and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge honor students who go above and beyond with 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.

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.
