Whose awesomeness have you noticed helping their peers overcome struggles or volunteering their time and talents to help others? Maybe it’s the eighth-grader taking the initiative to make positive changes, or the role model who is leading by example. Who is courageously overcoming personal challenges, yet making an impact on those around them? We want to know whose attitude and kindness makes someone’s day a little brighter. 

The McPherson Chamber of Commerce established the Outstanding McPherson Eighth Grade Award to recognize McPherson County eighth-graders for making a difference by their attitude and actions, their leadership qualities and service to their community. 

This special OMEGA Award recognition will take place on May 8, during May Fete activities. 

Please take the opportunity to nominate an eighth grader in McPherson County for this prestigious award. Nomination forms can be found at www.mcphersonchamber.org or picked up at the McPherson Chamber of Commerce, 306 N. Main. Deadline is April 4.
