This was the first I had heard about this program, but it’s a great way to recognize our young people who have the spirit of giving, volunteering and making a difference. It is also a great way to encourage kids to be selfless, help others and get involved in activities that fit these categories. If your child or someone you know deserves this award, nominate them or start working on projects to enter next year’s contest!
In addition, the Huggable Heroes will win a trip for themselves and a parent to St. Louis, the home of Build-A-Bear Workshop World Bearquarters. During their visit, the 2010 Huggable Heroes will meet each other, be honored for their good deeds and participate in a photo shoot for the 2011 Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes Calendar.
