NEW MEXICANS ARE KNOWN FOR their resilience and compassion. From volunteers and philanthropists to healthcare workers and educators, many individuals went above and beyond to serve their communities during the past 12 months.

Now it's time to recognize those exceptional individuals who have made a difference in our state. The New Mexico Magazine True Heroes Awards, presented in December 2023, will honor these deserving individuals.

Do you know a volunteer or philanthropist who has helped those in need? An innovator who created change in their community? A healthcare worker who has gone above and beyond to care for patients? An educator who has helped students overcome adversity? Nominate them today for the True Heroes Awards!

Last year's honorees transformed the landscape of medical treatment, helped refugee children, fought to support veterans, the homeless, and anyone in need, worked to ensure Native voices are heard, provided food for thousands of firefighters and evacuees during the state's largest wildfire, and inspired us during the ups and downs of a tumultuous year.

Please note, to be eligible, the nominee's service must have taken place between July 2022 and June 2023. For more information, please contact Anna Maria Gonzales at or 505-469-9592.
