Do you know someone who
  • has an inspiring story to tell?
  • has overcome hardship?
  • has contributed over and above to the community?
  • would be thoughtful and compelling in a television interview?
If so, it is time to recognize your Local Hero!
The Midpen Media Center is hosting the 13th annual Local Hero Awards. They are looking for nominees who have had unusual, memorable or inspiring life experiences - in short, those with great stories to share with the community. Consider this your opportunity to honor someone you admire and respect and also to contribute a wonderful story to the fabric of our community. Six winners are selected from among the nominees submitted by the public. Interviews with the winners are then taped and aired on the Media Center's local cable channels and online. The winners are also celebrated during a public screening and reception for the whole community. Previous years’ winners can be viewed on the Media Center YouTube page.

Please send in your nominations. It is easy! Just email Louise Pencavel with the following:
  1. Your name and contact information
  2. The name and contact information of the person you are nominating
  3. A description (a paragraph or so) of why your nominee should be selected
Winners must live in or work in/serve Atherton, East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Palo Alto or Stanford.

The deadline is Friday, October 19, 2018.
For more information email Louise Pencavel
