Do You Know an Unsung Hero? Nominate Them for a Holiday Award!

Columbia Mom has partnered with Joye Law Firm to bring our readers the following post.


Most people have an unrecognized hero in their lives. These unsung heroes are the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to give back to and care for their communities. Their acts of bravery and service make our lives better in large and small ways every day.

The holiday season is the perfect time to show how grateful you are for the heroes in your life. This is why the Joye Law Firm decided to start an annual local heroes contest to honor local SC heroes during the holiday season. This contest has been founded to reward local South Carolina citizens who have improved the lives of others through their acts of bravery and service. The firm will award three holiday cash prizes of $1,000 to local heroes in December.

How to Participate

Any SC citizen can nominate someone for a prize. The only eligibility requirement is that the nominee be a SC citizen. The winners and their acts of service and bravery will be shared on the Joye Law Firm’s website and social media channels.

Entries are due on 11/01/2019, and the prizes will be awarded in December, just in time for Christmas.

If you or someone you know wishes to nominate a local hero for one of these prizes, the next step is to write an essay that explains why this person deserves the prize. The nomination prompt is as follows:

“To nominate a local hero, the entrant should write an essay of 600 words introducing us to the person you consider a local hero. Explain why the individual should be recognized for his or her deeds. We are prepared to be overwhelmed because we have encountered a number of people over the years who deserved recognition for their selfless and heroic actions. We know that they are out there.”

Nominations can be made through the contest’s webpage:

The partners at the Joye Law firm are looking forward to reading about outstanding SC citizens and awarding three of them with a holiday prize. They hope that the contest will encourage SC citizens to appreciate the local heroes in their lives.
