It's our first-ever awards show, honoring the people and places that impact and uplift our lives every day!

There are just a few categories in this special presentation, and though there's technically just a single winner in each category, the best part about the Uplift Shiawassee People and Places Awards is that every person and place nominated was honored.

So, who and what are we honoring?  We're honoring Shiawassee County teachers, schools, pastors, churches, armed services and nonprofits.
