Nominate Your Local Hero

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’s time to recognize your Local Hero!

The Media Center is hosting the 11th annual Local Hero Awards and we are particularly interested in those 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. We solicit nominations from the public and six winners are selected. Interviews with them are taped and then air on the Media Center’s local cable channels and on the Internet. We celebrate them with a big public screening and reception for the whole community. Click to check out last year’s winners.

We value your input! Please send us your nominations. It’s easy! Just email:
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.
