On October 25, 2023 the Saanich News will publish and distribute a special feature to celebrate and recognize the amazing individuals that perform exceptional acts of service, that are selfless and courageous and that make our community a vibrant place to live, work and play.
The Local Hero Awards were formed with the intention of creating a platform for those powerful and engaging people stories that make our community strong. The awards bring together a diverse range of organizations and individuals, in the form of our sponsors, partners, nominees and nominators – to honour our community heroes.
And, it takes a community to produce the awards. The Saanich News would like to thank our title sponsors for helping support our inaugural awards. And a sincere thank you to our award sponsors for their support. (Award sponsorships are still available.)
Nominations are now open for 2023. Deadline is noon Sept 8, 2023.
