DES MOINES – The American Red Cross is looking for someone who has performed an extraordinary act of courage or dedicated countless hours to a special cause, and for those unheralded and unselfish citizens who have gone above and beyond in their everyday lives.

A hero from both Iowa and Nebraska will be honored before a crowd Friday, Nov. 24, at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln when the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Iowa Hawkeyes play in the Hy-Vee Heroes Game. Nominations for heroes are being accepted now through Oct. 22 on the Red Cross Iowa Region’s website. To nominate a hero, go to www.redcross.org/local/iowa/celebrating-heroes/nominate-a-hero.

People who are nominated to be a hero must be at least 18 years of age and live, work or go to school in either Iowa or Nebraska; however, their act of heroism or good deed need not have occurred in either state. Recipients will receive tickets to the game and on-field recognition. They also will have their name and hometown inscribed on the Hy-Vee Heroes Game trophy.
