NBC Montana has a new way to say "thanks" and recognize special people in our community, with the "Local Hero" salute." We are looking for people who make our communities a better place, people who inspire others, and people who help make the lives of others better. We ask that you let us know about candidates for the Local Hero Salute so we can let everyone in Western and Southwestern Montana know about our remarkable neighbors. Every month the KECI Local Hero Award Panel will review all nominations and select the next month's Local Hero. Beginning on the first of the month our salute will be broadcast at various times during the broadcast day on KECI for the month. It will also be posted on ktvm.com and nbcmontana.com
The Local Hero salute has already gotten a lot of interest, and we are receiving many nominations. Selecting a winner is very difficult, given the many nominations of people whose contributions, selflessness, and generosity to their communities are so moving. We salute and say thank you to all Montanans who give so much of themselves to make a difference. If your nominee is not selected please understand that we take the process very seriously and regret that we cannot award a salute to every nominee. Thanks for your support of all our Local Heroes.
