Each year, KLFY searches for Acadiana’s outstanding volunteer activist.
The Jefferson Awards is a national program named in memory of Thomas Jefferson and recognizes the unsung heroes in communities across the country.
KLFY is proud to be Louisiana’s Jefferson Awards media partner.
We’re now accepting nominations for our 2016 honoree, who will win an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the national competition.
The award committee is looking for civic-minded individuals who have created a non-profit organization that has positively impacted the community.
If you’d like to nominate a local volunteer, send us a short email about what your nominee has done to make Acadiana a better place to live, and why you feel they should be the 2016 Jefferson Award winner.
Send the email to KLFY’s Blue Rolfes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll be accepting your nominations until midnight, Sunday, March 6, 2016.
