Nominations open for the 2011 CNN Heroes

Nominations can now be submitted for the 2011 CNN Heroes, which recognizes individuals who have made extraordinary accomplishments in their areas of work and have inspired others. The program recognizes such individuals through a grant support to scale up their work and also awards them at a ceremony which is broadcasted on CNN, giving them massive international publicity.

Following are the suggestions given by CNN to help make the nominations of such persons:
  • Think about what makes your hero special. Ask yourself: What makes my nominee unique? What specific accomplishment has he or she achieved that is truly remarkable? What impact has their work had on others? We encourage you to watch videos of previous CNN Heroes to familiarize yourself with the achievements of the inspiring individuals we honor as “everyday people changing the world.”
  • Take a look at our nomination form. We suggest you review the information requested about yourself, your nominee and their work before filling out your submission.
  • Tell us about your hero! Take your time and write from the heart. Remember: What you share — in your own words — is the most important factor in advancing a nomination for further consideration. You can enter your answers to the essay questions directly on the form, or write them first in a word-processing document and “cut-and-paste” them into each answer field. Please note that the information you provide will be used in accordance with our privacy policy.”
Nominations must be in the name of a single individual, at least 13 years of age, whose accomplishment occurred (or continued) after November 25, 2010. Nominees in the “Young Wonder” category must be 25 years of age or younger. Groups and organizations are ineligible for consideration. Self-nominations will not be accepted.

Nominations are to be submitted online on CNN Website. The deadline to submit nominations is 1 September
