Build-A-Bear Workshop, one of our wonderful corporate sponsors, is accepting nominations for its ninth annual Huggable Heroes program that recognizes young heroes in local communities.
Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 27 throughout the country. Build-A-Bear is looking for kids who provide extraordinary service to their communities.
Candidates must be between the ages of eight and 18. Ten kids will be selected as Huggable Heroes and earn a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop World Bearquarters in St. Louis.
Each Huggable Heroe also receives a $7,500 scholarship and $2,500 to donate to a charity of their choice.
To nominate someone for the Huggable Heroes program, go to buildabear.com/huggableheroes or pick up an entry form at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores.
