The Journal Review is again seeking nominations for its annual Shining Star Award.
Since its inception in 2010, the annual award seeks to recognize individuals, families or other groups who, through their actions, demonstrate kindness and compassion towards others or the community.
“This program is aimed at fostering kindness among area residents and recognizing those who go out of their way to help others,” said Journal Review Editor Tina McGrady.
“We receive so many heartfelt nomination letters it can be difficult to decide who should receive the honor,” McGrady added.
The Journal Review staff will select six recipients for the award.
Each award winner will receive a small gift and will be featured with a photo and front page story during the week leading up to Christmas.
To nominate someone for the Shining Star award, write a short narrative that summarizes the person’s act of kindness and the impact it has had on an individual, group or community as a whole.
In the submission, include your name and telephone number, as well as contact information for the person you are nominating.
Nominations may be mailed or left at the Journal Review office at 119 N. Green St., Crawfordsville, IN 47933; or may sent by email to Tina McGrady at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations also are accepted online. Visit www.journalreview.com and look for the Shining Star button on the newspaper’s homepage.
A nomination form will appear regularly in the print edition of the Journal Review. All nominations must be received at the newspaper office by 4 p.m. Dec. 11.
