Everyday Heroes 2016

We know that countless AFT members go beyond their regular responsibilities and make a difference every day in their workplace or the community. We want to hear about these everyday heroes and give them the recognition they deserve.

This could be a co-worker who has made a difference in his or her workplace; a member who has has had a profound and positive impact on the community; or someone whose extraordinary contribution in his or her field of work, or to the lives of others, has been heroic.Nominate this person today, and you'll be entered to win a $250 American Express gift card. We will identify semifinalists from each of our constituencies: teachers, PSRPs, early childhood educators, higher education faculty, public employees, healthcare professionals and retirees. After a nationwide voting process, the finalists will be honored at the 2016 AFT convention in Minneapolis.

You have until March 11 to nominate an Everyday Hero. Use this brief nomination form. Nominate as many people as you like, but nominees must be AFT members.
