It’s awards season, and we wanted to give awards of our own. We asked our viewers who is a star in their lives, and responses poured in. From family members to business owners, there are a lot of people who are making an impact.

Tune in to KING 5 Mornings on Monday to see who in our community is making a difference to those around them.

Nominate someone who is a star in your life on the KING 5 Facebook page.

Samantha O'Grady:

"My Star! My sister in law Lacey O'Grady. She was on life support recently for 4 weeks and has an autoimmune disease that has significantly changed her life. She's on the transplant list at UW for a new liver and fights for her life daily. But she still is the best aunt, friend, sister and daughter any one could ask for. She wakes up everyday thankful for life and that she gets to live another day. She's inspiring with her optimistic outlook and enjoys everything she can. If only everyone could be as positive as she is the world would be A better place. Go Lacey!"
