ABC40 is looking to recognize all the good going on in our area schools.

That’s why we’re launching the ABC40 Honor Roll. Each day on 40 in the Morning and ABC40 News at 5:30 p.m., we’ll put the spotlight on a student, class or club that’s doing something special.

We’re looking for you to send us information about all good things - large and small - that you feel are worth recognition, especially those that acknowledge achievement in academics, citizenship and the arts.

Please feel free to email your suggestions to 40inthemorning@wggb.com.

For certain events, we may wish to send a news crew, but if it’s something that’s already taken place, we’d be happy to use your images (*.jpg files preferred) on the air.

We are greatly looking forward to working with you to show off the best Western Massachusetts has to offer - our children.
