Does Your Organization Have a Star Youth Volunteer?

Nestlé Drumstick Brand Heroes ContestDo you know a selfless child in your community of volunteers or donors? Does one kid stand out for their commitment, generosity or understanding? Nestlé is now offering you a chance to nominate these outstanding children as part of the Nestlé® Drumstick® Brand Heroes Contest. Winners receive a unique “thank you!” and opportunity to share their story with the world.

Fifty winning kids will be awarded the ultimate summer celebration, complete with enough Nestlé® Drumstick® sundae cones and a fun-filled party package to host an unforgettable event for up to 50 family and friends.

The contest is now in its second year, and John Harrison, Official Ice Cream Taster for the Nestlé® Drumstick® brand, said ‘entries will be judged on the child or teenager’s accomplishments, as well as the originality and creativity used to achieve their goals.’  One of last year’s winners, Hannah Tachouet (age 13) from Sebastopol, Calif., was nominated for kindness that extended beyond her years. She collected over 25 bags of clothing and $1,100 for a local women’s shelter, and she continues to speak to her peers about the importance of giving.

To nominate a child, an adult simply needs to submit the child’s story (150 to 500 words), describing why the child deserves to be a Drumstick® Hero.

All entries must be received by September 15, 2010 to be considered.

Adults over the age of 18 may nominate children between 6 and 17 years of age who are residents of the United States. Official contest rules are available online. Winning children will be notified by phone and/or mail throughout the length of the promotion.
