Nominate a Hero

Everyday Heroes Nomination Form

At the American Red Cross, the word hero is boundless and has no absolute definition. Your hero may be an educator, a nurse, a firefighter, young or old; they may act as an advocate for their employees, their patients, serve our country, or could be a wonderful neighbor from next door. We are looking to you to share your idea of a hero, tell us their story of selfless behavior, how they inspire, their contribution to the community, or how they have gone above and beyond to make this world a better place.

Heroic acts to be considered should have occurred during the 2014 calendar year. Nominations can be submitted at any time based on the following deadlines for each community event. See below:

  • Nominations for the Springfield, Mo. event should be submitted by January 15, 2015. Nominations received after this date will be considered for the 2016 Heroes event.

  • Nominations for the Joplin, Mo. event should be submitted by February 6, 2015. Nominations received after this date will be considered for the 2016 Heroes Event.

  • Nominations for the Lebanon, Mo. event should be submitted by February 9, 2015. Nominations received after this date will be considered for the 2016 Heroes Event.
