You know them. They are your neighbors, your friends, your coworkers. They sit in our classrooms. They deliver your mail. People who carry on with their daily lives while at the same time touching the lives of others. The person who faces adversity and is inspired to help others. The person who devotes himself or herself to make life better for someone else. They are the EVERYDAY HEROES to make Becker County a better place to live.
Each year, United Way of Becker County honors the everyday heroes that live among us. Help us recognize these unsung heroes by nominating an adult, youth, your business for our Everyday Hero Award. These awards are given out at the United Way Celebration of Heroes each spring.
We accept nominations in two categories: adult and youth (ages 6-18). The deadline for submission is April 1 of each year. Nomination forms must be completed in full. A Heroes Advisory Committee of community members select the award winners.
