PRESS RELEASE: The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce Seeks Nominations for Unmasked Hometown Hero Awards
Bloomington, IN – The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce is now accepted nominations for its upcoming “Unmasked Hometown Hero Awards,” which will take place August 20th. Stories have been coming in throughout the pandemic of community members who have sacrificed for the greater good, taken care of their neighbors, or helped support others in need, and the Chamber would like to recognize them.
Can you help the Chamber "unmask" these hometown heroes? We've all noticed others around us during this time who have stepped up, given more than their share to our community so that we could continue on, and helped to take care of others. As we continue our recovery, we would like to pause to appreciate all that these heroes have done and celebrate the positive impact they have had on all of us.
You can nominate someone you've witnessed give more than others, innovate to make things better, or just be a really good person. Nominees can be a neighbor, friend, colleague, business, organization, nonprofit, student, child, teacher, healthcare professional, public servant or a stranger, and the Chamber will "unmask" them at the virtual ceremony on August 20th.
Nominations are due by Monday, June 22nd, so take time this week to recognize those who have given so much to us in the recent months. To make a nomination visit www.chamberbloomington.org/heronominations.
