Time is running out to nominate someone who inspires you for a Positively Milwaukee Award. TODAY’S TMJ4 is accepting nominations for the annual awards show through July 31, 2019. Winners in each category will win $1000 for their charity of choice and will be eligible for an additional $4000 from TODAY’S TMJ4 and the Scripps Howard Foundation. All winners will be featured in a televised special this fall. You can nominate people at tmj4.com/awards in one or more of the following categories:
Community Hero (first responder)
Legacy Award (for someone who has passed away)
Carole Meekins, the host of the special, says these awards highlight what’s right in the world. “We’re inundated with negative information these days. To be able to shine a light on local people who do such good… well, that’s truly an honor and a privilege,” Meekins said.
