About Our Town, Our Heroes
History lauds them. Statues commemorate them. Countries celebrate them. Performers sing about them. And you probably know some. HEROES.
We are celebrating the local heroes who inspire you and drive positive change in your communities. Through the Our Town, Our Heroes program, we will feature a new Illinois hometown hero every two weeks through December here on DrivingtheMidwest.com.
The Driving the Midwest team will be accepting nominations year-round for local heroes. Every two weeks, we will select finalists and showcase them on our site. Then YOU will choose the winner by voting for your favorite hero and helping share his or her story! The winning hero – and the nominator (this means you!) – will have a chance to win a one-week loan of a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle and a full tank of gas, not to mention a few other surprises. You can see some of our recent heroes in the slideshow below!
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Legal residents of IL, 21 years or older who have a valid driver’s license. Contest ends 12/14/11. To enter and for Official Rules, including prize descriptions, visit www.drivingthemidwest.com. Void where prohibited.
