2015 Hawaii Red Cross Hero Nominations Now Open!

Do you know a hero – someone who has saved a life, made our community a safer place or gone above and beyond to help someone in need?

Each year, the Hawaii Red Cross celebrates and honors local citizens who exemplify the spirit of humanitarianism in line with the Red Cross mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering by coming to the aid of disaster victims, helping to save lives, and assisting military service members and their families.

The Hawaii Red Cross needs your help identifying local heroes! If you know a person or group that fits into one of the five Red Cross Hero categories below, submit a nomination form to honor their actions! (Note: act or activity must have taken place after July 1, 2013)

GIRL SCOUTS OF HAWAII EXPLORE DIVERSE CAREERS AT STEM FEST

GIRL SCOUTS OF HAWAII EXPLORE DIVERSE CAREERS AT STEM FEST

More than 120 Girl Scouts in Hawaii recently attended the 2014 STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) Fest. Female volunteer STEM professionals provided a variety of activities for the girls to give them an insider's perspective of non-traditional careers for women.

“As more women enter into traditionally male-dominated careers, it is important for leadership organizations, such as Girl Scouts of Hawaii, to expose the girls to all the potential professions,” said Shari Chang, CEO of Girl Scouts of Hawaii.

“Every girl needs a chance to explore the fascinating world of STEM. Girl Scouting encourages girls of all ages by offering ‘fun with purpose’ through its K–12 national program. This is only the second year we have held this event and the increase in the number of girls participating this year was phenomenal.”
