The application for Glocal Teen Hero opens on May 15.

An initiation by Glocal Khabar (a concern of Glocal Pvt Ltd), it aims to bring out teenagers who are doing something from the shadows, and create a ripple effect of motivation, and impart a message that a lot can be done by anyone, states a press release issued by Glocal Pvt Ltd.
