As the Bolivar Herald-Free Press gears up for its annual Pride and Progress special section, the newspaper is seeking help from its readers in the form of nominations.
For the third year, the BH-FP will recognize “Polk County pillars” — individuals, groups and organizations who have contributed to the county’s pride and progress in a number of ways.
The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12.
One nominee will be selected from each of four categories — community service, business/agriculture, healthcare and education — to be featured in the special section, along with photos and excerpts from nominations.
The names of all nominees will also be included.
To submit a nomination, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail it to PO Box 330, Bolivar MO 65613, or drop it by the newspaper office.
Nominations must include the following:
• Nominees’ names and contact information.
• The category for which they are being nominated.
• Specific reasons why the nominee should be selected and the author’s contact information.
