Nominate a Hero

Local Heroes bring the spirit of Peace Corps to our neighborhoods. Starting in 2002, RPCVLA began honoring people of our community.

RPCVLA would like to continue this tradition of honoring people of our community. If you want to nominate yourself or someone you know, please write a one-page, single-spaced essay stating the reason you believe this person is a local hero.

The deadline for submissions for the current year is August 24th by 5 pm. The RPCVLA Board members will review all nominees for final selection.

Please include the following:

  • How has the nominee contributed to our community?
  • What ongoing efforts does this community hero continue to make to improve the lives of others?
  • How is he or she a role model to all of us?
  • How has this individual brought the spirit of Peace Corps home?

Preferred method of submission: please email the essay to or copy & paste it in the form below.
