For the third year in a row, The Daily Green will be honoring people hugely famous, and not so much in their Heart of Green awards in April, and one of my favorite categories of the event is the Local Hero Award. Is there someone in your community that you think should get national recognition for their hard work on behalf of people and the environment?
Here are the details (or check out the video above):
Create a video of you, your nominee or both of you, explaining why your nominee deserves to be recognized. Share the video on our Facebook page.
Alternately, write a succinct (250 words) nomination, explaining why your nominee deserves to be recognized. Expect your nomination to be published under your name. Attach a quality photo of the nominee that The Daily Green has permission to publish.
Send the video link or the text and photo to TDG senior editor Dan Shapley ([email protected]). Write “Heart of Green nomination” and the nominee’s name in the subject line.
Include e-mail and telephone contact information so we can reach both you and your nominee.
State how you know or are affiliated with the nominee. Disclose any and all business interests. We prefer nominations submitted by those who work with, or are affected by, the nominee to those submitted by public relations professionals.
If you are nominating someone who has been previously nominated, you must submit a new nomination that adheres to the 2011 guidelines.
Send nominations by Monday, Feb. 14, 2011.
The Daily Green’s editors will select a winner. The Daily Green’s audience will also select one “People’s Choice” winner during online voting scheduled to begin Feb. 21. (The same person may win both.)
