2015 Young Heroes »»»

The Louisiana Young Heroes Awards began in 1996. The Rotary Club of Baton Rouge partnered with LPB starting in 1997. To date, 165 students from all parts of the state have been honored. The awards began to spotlight young people who have overcome adversity, excelled in academics or have served their community.

No two Young Heroes have the same story. We have had Young Heroes who have battled various diseases and handicaps, Young Heroes who have saved lives, Young Heroes who have bounced back from horrific events in their young lives, Young Heroes who have tirelessly worked for various charities (and some have even started their own charities!), and Young Heroes who have shared their amazing talents with others. Almost every one of our Young Heroes have something in common – they have gone through “make it or break it” episodes in their lives. These students faced their challenges and dealt with them – some overcame them. Some people would let these same obstacles beat them, allowing themselves to wallow in self-pity. These young people picked themselves up, moved forward, and inspired everyone around them.

Students in grades 7 through 12 and up to the age of 19 can be nominated. Students must be enrolled in a Louisiana school or home-schooled. Previous winners are not eligible.
