We are annually honoring extraordinary individuals who through their lifetime have shown imbedded life traits of selfless acts in serving their communities.
In addition to life traits of selflessness, we also look for individuals that not only possess leadership abilities but also the four core Viking traits:
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.
We search the entire country for the unique individuals we want to honor with the Hometown Heroes Leif Erikson Award. We not only search our own national database, but also actively map to track down the heroes and receive recommendations from the public.
Those we consider for the award possess the same traits as the Advisory Group members that we recruit for local police and government.
