THE LAST WEEK TO NOMINATE A LOUISIANA YOUNG HERO!
We want to hear about the unsung heroes - kids who have served their community or made great grades or have amazing talent - many despite adversities in their lives.LPB and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge present the Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. Now in its 18th year, the awards honor students in grades 7-12 who have excelled in the classroom, have served their community or have shown great courage in overcoming adversity in their own lives. In other words, these young people are an inspiration to those around them.
A WONDERFUL DOWNTON ABBEY SUPER SNEAK PEEK!

We had great door prizes, including Tea for Two at the Windsor Court in New Orleans! Plus, we also had a Downton Abbey costume contest! If you were not able to get in on this Downton Abbey event, stay tuned - there will be more!
