Nominate a Local Hero to be featured on Global Okanagan


Do you know someone awesome in the Okanagan? Tell us about them so we can share their story!

It could be someone who keeps a positive attitude through tough times, someone who constantly puts others’ needs before their own, perhaps a teacher or coach who goes above and beyond, or a young person who gives back in a big way. Maybe it’s a neighbor who has changed the community.

Do one or many of those sound like someone you know? We want to hear about them!

Every month, we’ll choose a new “Local Hero” to feature on Global Okanagan News at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.  as well as on our website.

Here’s how you can submit your Local Hero pitch:

  • Send an e mail (with subject line: Local Hero) with the person’s name, why you think they should be featured, and your contact information to: Okanagan@GlobalNews.Ca

With your help, we look forward to showcasing an inspiring new Local Hero every month on Global Okanagan.
