    Vote now to help decide our Community Hero for June. Voting is open until July 2.

    Columbia River PUD's Community Heroes are those people who go above and beyond to make our community a better place. The purpose of this program is to recognize and thank those who give their time and talents to make our community a wonderful place to live.

    Fill out the form below to nominate a Community Hero. Please be sure to indicate which month you are nominating the Community Hero for, as there are different themes for each month of the year.

    The winner each month will be featured in a short video explaining why they devote their time and energy to their specific cause. The person who nominates the recipient will also be filmed telling people why they made their nomination.

    We are accepting nominations for our July Community Hero until midnight on July 16.
