Nominate Local Do-Gooders

Posted By on Thu, Jun 21, 2012 at 1:04 PM

Who do you think is making our community a better place?

It's time for The Inlander's annual philanthropy issue (we call it Give Guide), where we highlight people who are changing things for the better here in the Inland Northwest.

But we need your help.

We're looking for people to showcase in the issue, and for nominations for our annual Peirone Prize, a monetary award recognizing people who are passionate about generating change in our community.

From education, youth and social action to the environment, animals or community gardening, there are tons of areas where local people are working hard to make our world better. Tell us who they are, what they do and why they deserve our support!

We know people of all ages are working hard to make a difference, but we want to encourage young people to get involved and stay involved, so we're especially looking for people 35-ish and younger.

Please send names of individuals you'd like to nominate, plus a sentence or two explaining why to giveguide@inlander.com by no later than next Thursday, June 28.
