Nomination Guidelines and Award Requirements
- All nominees must work or reside within our service area, which includes American Samoa, San Diego County and Imperial County. The heroic act may have occurred elsewhere.
- The heroic act must be either an ongoing commitment to the community for more than one year or have occurred on or after January 1, 2018.
- All nominees must be able to attend the Heroes Luncheon and be willing to participate in video interviews and photographs for media and promotional reasons (exceptions can be made if necessary).
Honorees will be selected by a committee of local community leaders based on the degree to which their actions uphold the values of the American Red Cross and leave a lasting and positive impact on our region. Award decisions are based on the information provided by the nominator, so please be detailed and include as much supporting material as possible.
