You don’t have to be super to be a HERO.
What can we do as individuals to reduce the incidence of bullying, violence or sexual exploitation?
Perhaps you know someone who has been active in reducing bullying and other violence, or has responded to it with an act of extraordinary bravery, compassion or commitment. Perhaps someone has taken steps to build safer, more caring schools and communities, preventing such incidents from recurring.
Safe and Caring considers such acts to be heroic, and we want to hear from you! The HEROES of a Safe and Caring World Award (HEROES Award) recognizes individuals and organizations who demonstrate a commitment to creating safe, caring, healthy and inclusive schools and communities.
Eligibility: Anyone is eligible for nomination – children, youth, teachers, adults, schools, community organizations, government representatives and businesses.
Submission Deadline: November 3, 2014
