Default Blagg calls for Sunshine Week heroes

In a communique distributed to all APA newspapers and members of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Coalition yesterday, Brenda Blagg called for nominations for “local heroes” in conjunction with Sunshine Week 2010. Blagg, regional editor for the Springdale Morning News, is one of this year’s Sunshine Week Coordinators for Arkansas. The other is Freedom of Information Coalition member Eric Francis of dogtownwriter.com.

This year National Sunshine Week, March 14-20, will feature a Local Heroes Contest to recognize people across the country who made a difference last year fighting to make public institutions more open and accessible. Organizers are seeking nominations from all parts of the country.

The deadline for nominating a “local hero,” is February 26, so Blagg is calling for nominations from localities across Arkansas. Nominations can be made on the Sunshine Week Web site: www.sunshineweek.org, and more information on the contest can be found there. Questions and comments should be directed to Blagg (foiarkansas@gmail.com) or Francis (Eric.Francis@yahoo.com).
