When I attended the Build-A-Bear Workshop program last summer I was first introduced to their Huggable Heroes program and got to meet one of the young people who won one of these awards.
Through their Huggable Heroes® program, Build-A-Bear Workshop recognizes and encourages young leaders, ages 8 to 18, who provide extraordinary service in their communities and around the world. The eighth annual search for these special kids is now on!
Anyone, ages eight and above, is eligible to nominate a candidate by completing a form found on the Build-A-Bear Workship Huggable Heroes site or by picking up an entry form at participating Build-A-Bear Workshop stores. Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 28, 2011.
Ten winners will each be awarded $10,000 with $7,500 in the form of a college scholarship and $2,500 donated to their special cause.
So if you know of an outstanding 8-18 year old who is trying to make a difference, I encourage you to nominate them to be a Huggable Hero.
