Search on for Unsung Heroes

| 17/07/2009

(CNS): Monday is the deadline to nominate an Unsung Hero. Sponsor FirstCaribbean is asking the public to help them find this year’s heroby nominating anyone they feel deserves recognition for the selfless work they do. Those nominated must be Caymanian or resident for five years, have a low media profile, be willing to participate in the awards ceremony, above all be dedicated beyond the ordinary towards social improvement.

Nomination forms are available online and at all FirstCaribbean branches. A release from the bank says the nominations deadline has been extended to 20 July.

FirstCaribbean has been a sponsor of the Unsung Heroes program every year since 2003. The aim of the award is to recognise the people in the community who give us pride in the present, hope for the future, and most importantly, they are living examples of the best each of us can be.
Each year FirstCaribbean takes part both locally and regionally in the Unsung Heroes program and representatives from each country receive a local prize and nomination for the regional prize. The nominees are people who selflessly dedicate their lives to making a difference for others, ‘ordinary people doing extraordinary things to enrich our communities’.

Each country finalist will receivea donation of US$6,000; the regional awardees number 1 Hero and two runners up will each receive an additional donation of US$7,500 and US$6,000 respectively. All donations will go towards the causes being championed.

“We are nearing the deadline for nominations of the 2009 award.” says Elvis Coward, local coordinator at FirstCaribbean International Bank. “We want to give every opportunity for the people of Cayman to pay tribute to local Heroes by nominating them for this prestigious award. The work and example of these ‘Unsung Heroes’ truly represent what each of us should strive to be, they are those that make a significant difference no matter how big or small in our community.”
