The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

The Maui News is ask­ing for our read­ers’ nom­i­na­tions for the an­nual Peo­ple Who Made A Dif­fer­ence fea­ture.

Nom­i­nees must be Maui County res­i­dents, groups or or­ga­ni­za­tions, pub­lic or pri­vate, who have made a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in the Maui County com­mu­nity in 2017. Th­ese could in­clude res­i­dents who per­formed heroic acts or helped solve a prob­lem in the com­mu­nity.

Awardees have ranged from Masaru “Pundy” Yok­ouchi in the first group of awardees in 1994 to Don McLeish, who has saved many swim­mers’ lives off Honokowai Point, last year.

The awards are not meant as life­time achieve­ment awards, and the nom­i­nees must be liv­ing.

The news staff of The Maui News will be se­lect­ing the 2017 Peo­ple Who Made A Dif­fer­ence based on the sub­mis­sions from the pub­lic. A tabloid will ap­pear in the Christ­mas Day is­sue of The Maui News with pro­files and pic­tures of the awardees.
