Vote for your favorite People Taking Action story

Each year, News 3 and our community partners at Southern Bank honor 12 of our People Taking Action award winners from the past year who did awesome things for their community.

One of those recipients will receive our annual People Taking Action Humanitarian Award. That winner will receive a $2,500 gift certificate to book a vacation, plus a $1,000 donation from Southern Bank to the charity of their choice.

You have until June 2 to vote!
