The Build-A-Bear Workshop is looking for Huggable Heroes again, for the eighth year running! Huggable Heroes is a fantastic program that recognizes young leaders that are making positive contributions in their communities and around the world. The program is designed to encourage and empower kids in the US, Canada and Mexico to be leaders – honour them for their dedication and accomplishments.
If you now a Huggable Hero between the ages of 8 and 18, you can nominate them. The winners will receive an educational scholarship, a donation to a charity of each Hero’s choice, a trip to St. Louis, Missouri, to World Bearquarters of Build-A-Bear Workshop and more. The photo above shows the 2009 Huggable Heroes. Entries will be accepted through February 28, 2011.
Nominate a candidate by visiting http://www.lovehugssmiles.com/HuggableHeroes.aspx. or by picking up an entry form at participating Build-A-Bear Workshop stores. And, read what past heroes have done to make a difference in this world!
