Nomination Form

    Nominator Information

  • Nominee Information



Nominees must be living and either born in Manitoba, or have resided in Manitoba for the last 10 years.

Nominations must include the full name and contact information (email and/or phone number) for both the nominator and nominee (person being nominated), along with a detailed description of the nominee’s achievement(s).
Nominations are first reviewed by the Our Manitoba Heroes committee to ensure that all criteria have been met.

All qualified nominations are then forwarded to an independent selection committee. (The selection committee is comprised of seven members, made up of sponsors and special guests. No members of the Our Manitoba Heroes committee may also be part of the selection committee.)

Each member of the selection committee, independent of the others, uses a voting process to determine the top 10 finalists and submits for final tally.

The Our Manitoba Heroes chairperson will contact the finalist nominees via telephone to notify them of their selection as a potential Our Manitoba Hero and to obtain their consent to the criteria required to be confirmed. All Manitoba Heroes must:

1) Commit to attending the Our Manitoba Heroes Gala
2) Consent to being interviewed by the media
3) Consent to being interviewed in a Manitoba Heroes video and attend a professional photography session
4) Consent to the use of; their name, photo, and details of their achievements which lead to their nomination, for use in Our Manitoba Heroes marketing materials.

Should any nominee be unable to meet these requirements, they will be disqualified as a Hero finalist. The process will continue until five nominees have committed to all criteria. Upon final selection of the five Our Manitoba Heroes, two personal references may be required for a potential background check, if deemed necessary, prior to final confirmation as an Our Manitoba Hero.
