Public invited to awards presentation

The public is invited to the Dubois County Making A Difference Awards presentation at Astra Theatre at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1.

The event, sponsored by Kimball Electronics Gives, the employee giving circle of Kimball Electronics, includes an awards ceremony for Dubois County schools, students, businesses and organizations who entered the Making A Difference challenge held throughout September.

The contest includes Making A Difference-related projects, captured on 1- to 3-minute videos, and student essays. Video links and essays can be sent to scott.saalman@kimballelectronics by Sept. 30 to be considered for the awards.

The Oct. 10 event will feature the project videos, winning student essays, music by Kyle Lueken and Debbie Schuetter, Herald humor columnist Scott Saalman, and guest speaker Alex Rose, an international underwater photographer who is science editor for Ocean Geographic Magazine.

Tickets are $10. All proceeds will go to the Kimball Electronics Gives charitable granting efforts held later this year. You can order advanced tickets online at or purchase at the Astra that evening, beginning at 6:15 p.m.
