Nominations for KYW Newsradio GameChangers are now closed. The winners will be announced before Feb. 1. Thanks to all who submitted nominations!
For the fifth year in a row, KYW Newsradio 1060 will highlight individuals who have “changed the game” for the African-American community in the Greater Philadelphia area.
Gamechangers are individuals or organizations that have used their volunteer efforts and community influence to make a significant, positive change for people of color in the previous twelve months.
For each of the past four years, KYW’s Gamechangers series recognized ten individuals. Examples of their accomplishments include revitalizing neighborhoods by building low-income housing, ending the sales of realistic bb-guns at toy corner stores and collecting thousands of books to donate to under-served students!

Now, put on your thinking cap! Who do you know someone who has has a significant, positive impact in the Black community this past year? Did they clean up the neighborhood? Use their own money to feed their neighbors? Saved the lives of youth through mentoring? C’mon– you know someone who quietly works to make the community better, rarely asking for anything in return. This is your chance to give them the credit they deserve.
Gamechangers will be decided by January 30th and will be featured on KYW Newsradio 1060 and on CBSphilly.com during February 2017 (“Black History Month”). They will also be honored at an awards ceremony in February.
