Young Hero Nomination
Leadership is an important skill to acquire and is essential in every organization, business, and community as a whole. Some people are born with a leadership gene, but others learn the skills necessary to not only be in charge, but guide others. Goldstein and Bashner work with many young people who are the victims of bullying, but many times these people are the ones who lead in the future. And oftentimes there are other peers who are there to help.
This is why Goldstein and Bashner are hosting their first Young Hero Nomination. Mentors, teachers, parents, and peers are invited to nominate an amazing young person they know who shows him or herself to be a future leader, or who is one already. The selected winner will have the opportunity to attend a leadership conference in 2020.*
Nominations should be from New York City neighborhoods of Nassau, Suffolk, Bronx, or Queens, and will be collected until midnight on Friday, February 28th, 2020. The winning young hero and the person who nominated them will be contacted the following week.
*The specific conference will be selected after the event, depending upon the winner’s age and interests. The value of the leadership conference or event ticket will not exceed $350.
**Nominations must be for different families or from different people, multiple nominations for the same family from the same person will not count for more than one submission.
