Everyday Heroes of the Tri-States

Dupaco, The American Red Cross of the Tri-States, KWWL and Radio Dubuque stations (1370 KDTH, 92.9 KAT-FM, 101.1 The River and 97.3 The Rock) are proud to announce the 13th annual Everyday Heroes of the Tri-States recognition program.

Do you know someone who has made an extraordinary difference in the life of another and/or within their community? If so, consider nominating them as an Everyday Hero.

What Qualifies Someone as an Everyday Hero?
Everyday Heroes are nominated by their peers to be recognized for going above and beyond in service to others. An Everyday Hero is someone who has made a difference in any of the following categories: Animal Rescue, Education, Fire & Rescue, Good Samaritan (youth), Good Samaritan (adult), Health Care, Law Enforcement, Military, Professional Responder, Volunteer Community Impact, or Workplace Safety. An act of heroism does not need to involve the direct saving of a life.

In order to be eligible for the award nomination, the hero must live, work, or go to school in the area served by the American Red Cross of the Tri-States, which includes: Allamakee, Bremer, Butler, Cedar, Chicksaw, Clayton, Clinton, Delaware, Dubuque, Fayette, Floyd, Howard, Jackson, Jones, Mitchell, Winneshiek and Worth counties in Iowa; and East Dubuque, Illinois.

An independent selection committee, with no affiliation to the Red Cross or its sponsors, will select the award winners in February, and a public breaskfast will be held to honor all Heroes in March 2016.
