Granite State Communications Hometown Hero Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding contributions in the communities we serve. The nominated individual may be someone who does hands-on volunteer work at a local club, organization, youth group or elder care facility. They may also serve on local councils or civic organizations. No matter what, this individual is always willing to volunteer and quick to lend a hand when called upon.

Each year, in conjunction with our Customer Appreciation Open House, we present a Hometown Hero Award to individuals or community organizations within our service area that have made outstanding contributions to the community.
