Nominate a Rising Star

By now, many of you should be familiar with our annual Rising Stars issue in which students are recognized for his or her efforts in the classroom.

This is much more than a pull-a-name-out-of-the-hat routine. We want to hear what makes your student stand out from the pack. Keep it short and sweet, 250–350 words max. Candidates will range from first grade through high school. There is only one rule: the student must reside in South Philly (19145, 19146, 19147 or 19148) or attend a South Philly school.

If you have someone in mind, email your info to
