First 5 Tulare County is now accepting applications for its 10th Annual Hands-on Heroes Awards. The Hands-on Heroes program honors individuals in Tulare County who are instrumental in improving the lives of children 0-5 years old during the early years of development and ensuring every child experiences the type of early environment – at home, at child care, at school, and in the community – that will promote their overall wellbeing. 

There are six categories that will be awarded: Community advocate; exceptional volunteer; health and wellness; behavioral health; parent education/strong families; and early care and education.

Nominations will be accepted until January 14 at noon. They can be submitted online at First5tc.org. Nominations can also be emailed to info@first5tc.org, or dropped off at the First 5 Tulare County office at 200 N. Santa Fe St. in Visalia. 

For questions, e-mail info@first5tc.org.
