CBC looking for a few good Manitobans

Budget 2018: Manitoba starts slaying deficit dragon

Give us your leaders, your innovators, your newcomers, your trailblazers.

CBC Manitoba is looking for the most Manitoban Manitobans, whether they embody our province's past, are leaders today, or are poised to create our future. 

The best submissions will be included in #iamMB, a storytelling project to mark 2017. 

If you can think of someone whose story needs to be told, tell us! 

Go to www.cbc.ca/iammb and tell us why your nominee has the special talents, the brains, the character and the resumé to be #iamMB. They don't have to be from here, or even identify as Canadian — we're looking for anyone involved in shaping our province or what it means to be Manitoban. 

The finalists will be chosen by a team of CBC editors to represent Manitoba's huge diversity of communities, professions and places. 

The nomination period closes May 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. CT. Until then, follow the project via your social media feeds using #iamMB.
