TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski on Tuesday issued a call for nominations for Baltimore County’s second annual Community Heroes Awards, which will again recognize seven individuals — one from each County Council district — who have made significant and meaningful contributions to their communities and for their selfless dedication to making a difference for those around them.

The Baltimore County government is encouraging residents to nominate their local heroes. These individuals should be nominated for their selfless dedication to making a difference for those around them. They should be residents of Baltimore County, and current Baltimore County employees and elected officials are not eligible.

Examples of a community hero include creating programs and initiatives in response to community needs, raising awareness about their community’s history or legacy, and establishing and nurturing community relationships. A community hero should also advocate for their communities’ most vulnerable residents or volunteer at local institutions in need of assistance.

Residents can submit a nomination online here. The deadline is June 30, 2024.
