DELPHOS — The Delphos Herald is searching for the 2017 Tri-County Area Man and Woman of the Year.

Nominees should, by reason of public service and community involvement, deserve the title “Woman of the Year” and “Man of the Year.”

A panel of judges not associated with the newspaper will decide the winners.

Judges will evaluate nominees based on written recommendations. Delphos and Tri-County civic, church and social organizations, as well as individuals, are urged to submit nominations.

Recommendations must be received by 5 p.m. Dec. 18 in The Delphos Herald newsroom, 405 North Main St., Delphos, 45833, or e-mail nominations to nspencer@delphosherald.com.
