Shine On St. Joseph

Know someone who really shines? The News-Press Now Morning Edition is on a mission to recognize people in our community who do small deeds with a big heart – and we need YOUR help! We're asking you to nominate those individuals in our community who help others in a small way, people who expect or get no recognition for their little kind acts. We will feature one nominee in a Shine On St. Joseph story the last Thursday of each month!

Guidelines for Nominations

• Person nominated must live or work within the News-Press Now viewing area.
• You may submit as many nominations as you wish. You may also nominate more than one person for a single Shine On award, such as a husband-wife duo, should the nomination so warrant.
• Nominations must be received by the last day of the month to be considered for the next month's Shine On award.
• Nominations need only be submitted once. News-Press Now will consider all nominations in the cumulative for each Shine On St. Joseph story, regardless of when the nominations were received.
• Nominees should generally not be employed for what they are being nominated (such as a director of a charitable organization being nominated for their work there), however, it will not automatically exclude someone employed in that field should they be nominated for other reasons.
• Nominees selected for Shine On St. Joseph will receive a plaque and have their story told on the News-Press Now Morning Edition the last Thursday of each month, as well as on newspressnow.com.
• Nominees can be a recipient of a Shine On award only once; however, they may be considered for a future Shine On award should their reason for the nomination change significantly.
• Person selected must agree to be interviewed, recorded and /or photographed for stories. Should they decline, a plaque will not be issued and another recipient will be chosen in their place.
• In nominating someone for Shine On St. Joseph, please submit your contact information, in case we need to contact you for the story. You may choose to remain anonymous to the award recipient.
• Persons selected for Shine On St. Joseph stories will be chosen by members of the News-Press Now staff, who will determine story content.
• All nominations become property of News-Press Now, its parent company and related media outlets. While nominations will be kept for consideration for future months of Shine On stories, some not chosen for Shine On St. Joseph may be used for other story ideas for News-Press Now, the St. Joseph News-Press or newspressnow.com.
