The Washington County Community Foundation is accepting nominations of unsung heroes for The People's Choice award.
For the fourth year in a row, the foundation will honor three people in the community who work behind the scenes to make life better for others in Washington County.
The People's Choice award nominations are due by Oct. 3.
Last year's winners were William McLean for his 50 years on the board at the Washington County Association for Retarded Citizens; Vivian Hackman, who volunteered more than 43,000 hours for the Washington County Hospital Auxiliary; and Ralph Stottlemyer Jr., a Washington County teacher and veteran coach.
In 2001, the foundation gave The People's Choice award to Jean Wainwright of Food Resources Inc.; Cindi Messersmith, of REACH Inc., and Charles R. Rowe Sr. of Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Washington County.
