The Young Heroes is an annual recognition for youth in grades 7 - 12 who have gone the extra mile in helping others or themselves in time of adversity or challenge. The event is co-sponsored by Louisiana Public Broadcasting and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge. We are seeking nominations from across the state. The Rotary Club of Baton Rouge and LPB love shining the spotlight on teens who are doing good things in their schools, families, churches, and communities. I am betting that YOU know a Young Hero!
Young Heroes in past years have shared their talents with others, raised money for charity – or started their own charities – overcome physical or emotional hardships, and some have even saved lives. One word describes all of our Young Heroes over the years: inspirational!
Students in grades 7-12 are eligible to be nominated. Nominees must be in a Louisiana public, private or parochial school, or can be homeschooled, and they cannot be older than 19 years of age.
