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.
