7Everyday Hero Award

admin December 13, 2010 0

Coloradoans who make a difference in their community are celebrated every week on the Denver Channel during a 7 News broadcast. This tradition began with KLZ radios and ABC affiliate Channel 7 and continues to this day. Channel 7 became famous for its long running shows and their custom of community service. 7Solutions supports working families through direct community service, help, and information in order to improve the lives of needy Colorado families.

The 7Everyday Hero Award salutes Coloradans who do good. Good people who motivate others, initiate solutions, serve working families, and work on a non-profit basis are given the 7Everyday Hero Award.

Every Sunday at 10 p.m. 7News anchor Mitch Jelniker presents the 7Everyday Hero Award. The next day, Monday at 5 a.m., on Thursday at 11 a.m., Friday 4 p.m. Saturday 5 p.m. and Sunday 7 a.m. the segment is repeated.


In case you want to recognize a person who stands out in the community, you must fill out the nomination form. A volunteer committee of 7News employees decided on the criteria for nomination.
