BH-FP seeks nominations for upcoming special section


Only days remain to nominate individuals who deserve to be recognized for pursuing pride and progress.

As the Bolivar Herald-Free Press gears up for its annual Pride and Progress special section — set to insert Wednesday, March 30 — the newspaper is seeking help from its readers in the form of nominations.

For the fourth 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. 18. 

One nominee will be selected from each of four categories — community service, business, 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, go to bit.ly/3t42baU. The link for the nomination form may also be found at BolivarMoNews.com and on the BH-FP’s Facebook page.

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.
