We announce award winners annually on the official Leif Erikson day in honor of the brave Norwegian Viking who discovered America, as we feel that our honorees being honored possess the same core traits. 

Nationwide Award

We search the entire country for the unique individuals and double impact companies we want to honor with the Hometown Heroes Leif Erikson Award. We both search our own national database, actively map the marketplace and receive recommendations from the public.
