The American Red Cross of Stark and Muskingum Lakes, in partnership with WJER Radio, WTUZ Radio, and the Times-Reporter, is now accepting nominations for its annual Hometown Hero Awards. Winners are chosen by a panel of civic volunteers and community leaders and honored at the Hometown Hero Awards Breakfast on April 24th. Additionally, the Red Cross will hold a “Hometown Heroes” youth (K-12) writing/coloring contest, presented by The Times-Reporter.
Click here to nominate an individual. Nomination forms are also available at the Red Cross, public libraries, and area businesses.
Each year, the Hometown Hero Awards honor local individuals who have had an extraordinary impact on the community or have demonstrated the values of courage, character, humanity, or personal initiative. Nominees must reside in or be employed in Carroll, Harrison, or Tuscarawas County. The heroic event must have occurred in 2014 but may have taken place outside of Carroll, Harrison, and Tuscarawas Counties.
“This event is the perfect opportunity to honor the everyday heroes in our own communities,” said Kim Kroh, Executive Director of the Stark and Muskingum Lakes Chapter. “There are so many stories of individuals who have risked their lives to save that of another, or used a skill, like CPR, to help a stranger or loved one. The Red Cross believes that it is important for our community to recognize those individuals and their great works.”
The Stark and Muskingum Lakes Chapter will honor and celebrate the selected stories at a Hometown Hero Awards Breakfast at 8:30 a.m on April 24th at the Tuscora Park Pavilion (161 Tuscora Avenue NW, New Philadelphia). Tickets are available on the website or by calling 330-343-8633.

The deadline for both the hero nomination and the writing/coloring contest is March 13th.
