Calling all humanitarians, philanthropists, artists, environmentalists and activists: Who do you think is making a positive difference in the Inland Northwest?

We're currently looking for nominees for our fifth annual Peirone Prize — a cash reward recognizing passionate, local folks who have dedicated their lives to the service of others. Previous winners include Jamie Borgan  the program director of New Leaf Bakery; Virla Spencer, the outreach coordinator at Center for Justice; and Brent and Amy Hendricks, founders of Global Neighborhood. One of our goals is to inspire young people to get involved in our community, so we're especially looking for people under or around the age of 35.

Know anyone who deserves our support? Please send us the names of the people you'd like to nominate to [email protected] no later than Friday, Aug. 1. In your email, include their ages and a brief explanation as to why they deserve recognition. We'll choose three winners based on your responses and showcase their contributions to the community in our annual Give Guide issue on Aug. 28.
