Nominate Someone for Iowa/Nebraska Game “Hero” Award

Do you know of someone locally who deserves to be nominated for being a “hometown hero”?

Each year, hometown heroes from Iowa and Nebraska are honored during the Hawkeyes and Cornhuskers football game in late November. Tammy Lee, executive director of the North and Western Iowa Chapter of the American Red Cross, says it’s become an annual tradition.

She encourages people to fill out the simple online form and nominate someone for the award.

Some of the previous years’ honorees have been recognized for heroic, life-saving acts.

The entry deadline is October 23rd. Nominations can be made online at
