TODAY'S TMJ4 is proud to announce the first ever Positively Milwaukee Awards.
We want to recognize everyday people who are doing positive things in our communities.
There are six award categories:
Youth Award: A young person (18 years old at time of nomination) living in Southeastern Wisconsin who is going above and beyond to volunteer and inspire others in his or her community.
Senior Volunteer Award: A senior (at least 65 years old at time of nomination) living in Southeastern Wisconsin who is going above and beyond to volunteer and inspire others in his or her community.
Community Hero: A Southeastern Wisconsin firefighter, police officer, emergency worker, or member of the military who risked his or her own life or safety to come to the aid of another in the line of duty or even out of uniform. A nominee who works full-time, part-time, or as a volunteer (for example, as a volunteer firefighter) as well as active-duty military and reservists will be eligible as a "community hero."
Unsung Hero: A Southeastern Wisconsin volunteer who has been giving their time generously for many years with little to no recognition or acclaim.
Teacher of the Year Award: A Southeastern Wisconsin teacher or educator whose passion for education extends beyond any classroom and is inspiring others to learn and live a positive life. To be eligible for the teacher award, the nominee must teach in a public or private school in Southeastern Wisconsin in grades junior kindergarten through 12.
Legacy Award: A Southeastern Wisconsin person who has passed away in the last year, who left behind a legacy of charity, kindness, and inspiration.
Nominations must be made online at tmj4.com/awards.
The deadline to nominate someone is Aug. 21, 2017.
Award winners will be notified by TODAY'S TMJ4.
