The Jewish Light is now requesting nominations for its 12th annual Unsung Heroes awards. Roughly 10 honorees will be celebrated in the Light’s newspaper and on its digital platforms, as well as at a virtual ceremony that will premiere Thursday, Nov. 11. 

The nomination form appears on Page 14A in the June 16 edition and will be included in the newspaper through July. Nominations can also be made online at www.stljewishlight.org/unsung.

The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Friday, July 30.

The Light solicits nominations of volunteers making a major impact through their work without seeking substantial public recognition for their efforts.
