Do you know a hero? If you do, consider nominating your hero for the Volvo for
Life Awards, the nation's largest annual search for and celebration of everyday
heroes, with more than $1 million in financial contributions.
Now in its second year, the Volvo for Life Awards honors individuals making
outstanding contributions in the areas of safety, environment, or quality of life.
For example, nominees could include people who have accomplished things such as
opening a community center for needy kids, developing recycling programs for their
schools, or helping save the life of a perfect stranger. Think you know someone
who fits this description? If so, beginning September 16, 2003, go to
www.volvoforlifeawards.com to nominate a hero. Volvo just might feature your
nomination on the site and in the media.
You have until January 16, 2004, to submit a nomination. In March, Volvo will
select 100 semi-finalists, who will receive a framed certificate of merit to honor
their accomplishments. From those 100 semi-finalists, Volvo will select the top
three finalists in three categories: safety, quality of life, and environment.
From these finalists, celebrity judges including Hank Aaron, Bill Bradley, Maya Lin,
and Paul Newman, will name one winner for each of the three categories; winners will
each receive $50,000 to be donated to the charities of their choice. The remaining
six finalists will each receive a $10,000 charitable donation. The three category
winners will be flown to New York on April 7, 2004, to be honored at the Volvo for
Life Awards Ceremony in Times Square Studios, where an overall winner will be
announced and presented with a Volvo car or SUV for life.
