The Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes program, now in its 10th year, is accepting nominations for young people ages eight to 18 who are doing their part to make the world a better place. Deadline is February 28. Ten Huggable Heroes will each receive $10,000, which includes an educational scholarship, a donation to a charity of their choice, and a mentoring scholarship to support their charitable entrepreneurships. In celebration of the 10th birthday of its Huggable Heroes program, Build-A-Bear Workshop is joining forces with the Jefferson Awards for Public Service, one of the nation’s top community service recognition programs. Through the Jefferson Awards’ GLOBECHANGERS training and mentoring systems, the newest generation of philanthropists recognized by Build-A-Bear Workshop will be equipped with the tools they need to build a lifetime of public service.
