Do you know someone who has performed an extraordinary act of courage or dedicated countless hours to a special cause?
Through a joint effort between the Iowa American Red Cross and the Nebraska American Red Cross one individual from each state will be selected to represent Iowa and Nebraska at The Heroes Game presented by Hy-Vee in November.
If the hero resides in Iowa they will be considered for Iowa and likewise for the state of Nebraska. The act of heroism does not have to be limited to the like state’s parameters.
NOMINATION GUIDELINES: Heroism need not involve the direct saving of a life. If nominating for a heroic event, the event must have occurred between September 1, 2013 and August 31, 2014. For other categories, the service should be ongoing and/or exemplary. Nomination forms must be received by midnight on October 14, 2014. Judging is done by the Heroes Selection Committee made up of Iowa and Nebraska business and community leaders, including Red Cross supporters. In order to be eligible for the nomination, heroes must live, work or go to school in either Iowa or Nebraska. All non-winning entries for the Hy-Vee Heroes Game will be re-submitted for consideration in the Iowa and Nebraska American Red Cross Annual Heroes Event to be held in 2015.
