The clock is ticking on time for you to make your nominations for our 2013 Person of the Year. But you have until noon Monday to submit your nominations on paper or by using our online form.
Thanks to all who've submitted so far - and to all who are thinking about good candidates and working on nominations of their own.
The Person of the Year is the person who has made the biggest difference in our area this year. It's that simple - and that complicated. Help us sort through the scores of people whose work helped others, created jobs, managed major changes, made or community more beautiful or more successful. Help us think about the people whose actions have shaped this year.
The Daily Herald Media Editorial Board will consider all the names submitted to us, and we'll make our own nominations, too. We'll give consideration to the widest range of candidates we can find, and in December we'll print the names of every nominee we receive.
Help us decide. Visit www.wausaudailyherald.com/personoftheyear to submit your nomination online. You also can print out a nomination form there.
If you have questions or concerns, get in touch. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Community Conversation Editor Robert Mentzer at 715-845-0604.
The deadline for nominations is noon Monday. We'll announce the winner in mid-December.
We're excited about featuring some of this year's people of impact. And we need your help to make sure we're giving consideration to all the great people in the community who have made a difference.
