PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - Each week, News 13 partners with Sonny's Barbecue and Bay District Schools to present the It's a Big Deal Student's Care award.
Students are nominated by their teachers each week and the new winner is announced every Monday on News 13 Live at Five.
This week we honor Michael Hoke, a fifth grader at Patronis Elementary School, who showed compassion for a classmate whose family became homeless over the Christmas holidays.
"I wanted to be kind and generous because he wasn't getting Christmas," Michael said.
Michael is not the only Big Deal in Bay County this week. Teachers nominated students at 27 schools.
