How the Program Works

The best information comes from the Heroes themselves.

  1. Visit the HearthSong Heroes page to meet our Heroes.
  2. Then read the questions and answers below, and be sure to read the Program Rules.

Who is eligible to be considered as a HearthSong Hero?

Nominations must be in the name of a single individual, 18 years of age or under on December 31 in the year he or she is nominated. Self-nominations will not be accepted. For complete details on eligibility requirements and other rules governing selection of HearthSong Heroes, please read our legal disclosures.

How will I know if my Hero is selected?

Because of the high volume of nominations received, we cannot respond individually to each submission. However, if your nomination advances, we will contact you and your nominee through the contact information you provide.

What if I don't know my nominee's address, email and telephone number?

Please make every effort to provide as much contact information as possible. We require an e-email address or telephone number so we may quickly contact your nominee to obtain permission for consideration as a HearthSong Hero.

May I submit additional supportive information about my nominee?

There's space at the end of the form to provide links to articles or websites with more information about your hero. Please do not send additional material unless requested.

May I mail or fax my nomination?

No-all nominations must be submitted online through our website.

What if my nomination form is rejected?

When filling out your form, please note that certain information is required. Those fields are marked with an asterisk(*).

HearthSong is not responsible for technical problems that may prevent our submission from being successfully transmitted. You may wish to first write and sav the answers to essay questions in a word-processing document. That way, if you need to resubmit your information, you can "cut and paste" those answers into the form without rewriting them.

How are the HearthSong Heroes selected and how are grants determined?

A committee of HearthSong employees will review all nominations each calendar quarter and may choose to honor one or more Heroes by telling their story on our Heroes page. A Hero is not required to be named each quarter. Award of grants and amounts will be determined solely by the HearthSong committee and may not be awarded to every hero.
