WE WANT TO HEAR ALL ABOUT YOUR YOUNG HEROES!
We hear too much about young people who get in trouble -- 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 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.
