The best information comes from the Heroes themselves.
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.
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.
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.
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.
No-all nominations must be submitted online through our website.
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.
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.
