The Dispatch Media Group awards recognize Central Ohioans who make a difference.

Too often, good works go unnoticed. For the third year, Dispatch Magazines and its sister publications are partnering to tell the story of Central Ohioans who are quietly making a difference in our community. We call them Everyday Heroes.

Everyday Heroes seeks to recognize the unsung volunteers who feed the hungry, help needy children and perform countless other types of community service to improve the world around them. The joint effort by Dispatch Media Group includes Dispatch Magazines (Columbus Alive, Columbus CEO, Columbus Monthly and Columbus Parent), The Columbus Dispatch and ThisWeek Community News.

Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized? We hope you’ll take the time to make a nomination for the 2019 Everyday Heroes awards. The deadline is April 12.
