Do you know a child who has excelled in the classroom, served their community, inspired others through their deeds or strength of character or shown great courage in overcoming adversity, physical or otherwise, in their lives? Help these worthy young people get recognized by nominating them for the 2013 Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. The deadline for entries is Friday, February 8, 2013.
Now in its 17th year, the Louisiana Young Heroes Awards honor Louisiana students in grades 7-12 who are also not over the age of 19. Homeschooled students may be nominated. Previous winners are not eligible. The awards are co-presented by the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge. ExxonMobil is the underwriters for the project.
You can download an entry form from the LPB website (http://www.lpb.org/heroes
) or fill it out online. Remember, you are making the case for the nominee so send along letters of recognition and other supporting materials to support their nomination. (Please send copies as the materials will not be returned.)
Winners will be announced on March 1, 2013. Young Heroes Day will be held on April 17, 2013. The winners and their families will be honored at a luncheon at the Governor’s Mansion in Baton Rouge.
