Last school year, New Day was proud to partner with Sterling Bank for our very first New Day Hero Award. We wanted to recognize young people in the Northwest who are doing great things for others and embody the spirit of Rachel’s Challenge, a kindness project based on the life of a wonderful teenager who lost her life in the Columbine tragedy. We’re so thrilled to do this again this year and to recognize another round of outstanding role models. Bob Weisel, the Market President of Sterling Bank, helps us kick things off!
Nominations are open for our final New Day Hero of the 2012/2013 school year. If you know someone between the ages of 13 and 25 who's made a positive impact in his or her community, send us an email of 250 words or less, plus a picture of the nominee, to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about them! The winner will receive a $250 cash award courtesy of Sterling Bank.
The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, May 31, 2013. Winners will be notified on or around June 3 and must be available to accept the award live on New Day if selected.
