How to Nominate a Hometown Hero

Hunt said that recipients are electronically nominated via the nomination form and selected by a committee. Currently, there are three students on the committee who contact each nominee to congratulate them and obtain information about the nominee or their organization. The students use that information for their presentation when giving the nominee their plaque.
