Will you nominate an unsung hero and help them to get $500 or $1,000 from Justin’s nonprofit Community Action Team?  Deadline is today, Wednesday, January 21, 2015. Pubic also invited to awards dinner this Sunday.

The annual LONG BEACH HEROES awards will be presented by Justin Rudd’s nonprofit Community Action Team on Sun., Jan. 25, 2015, at Bay Shore Church. Funded by proceeds from the Long Beach Turkey Trot.

DO YOU HAVE a relative, a friend or a co-worker who is having a big impact in the Long Beach area? In every neighborhood, there are “unsung heroes” – volunteers and paid professionals who go well beyond their expected duties. Perhaps the person you nominate is active in education, the environment, animal welfare, youth or sports. Or, maybe there is no one “category” for which the person champions. We want to know about people you think should be recognized. WE WANT TO recognize the unsung heroes and help them to financially continue doing what they are doing.

It’s simple to nominate a Long Beach Hero

  1. Come up with some reasons that you think make your nominee unique and remarkable.  Also, think through the kind of impact the person has made here in our community this past year (2014).
  2. Go to our online {nomination form} and tell us about your hero.  Remember, in order for your hero to move along in the selection process, it’s important for you to answer each question directly on the online form.  Remember, the information you share with us will be shared with the general public and media if your nominee is selected.  TIP: We highly suggest that you first write and save the answers to the questions in a word-processing document, in case you want to re-submit your nomination, you can “cut-and-paste” those answers into the form without re-writing them.
  3. Be sure to click “submit” when you are satisfied with the info you have typed in.  You’ll get a confirmation email.
  4. Nominations for 2014 Long Beach Hero awards must be received by MIDNIGHT on Wed., Jan. 21, 2015.
  5. Make sure that both the nominator and nominee would be able to attend, if selected, the dinner ceremony in Belmont Shore.
  6. Nominees and nominators who are finalists will be contacted by email by approx. Thurs. evening, Jan. 22, 2015.

NOTE: previous Long Beach Heroes are not eligible to be recognized again.
