better the lives of others. Entries are accepted through February 28, 2013, for the 2013 search for Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes. Ten
Huggable Heroes each receive $10,000, which includes an educational
scholarship, a donation to a charity of their choice and a mentoring
scholarship to support their charitable entrepreneurships. In celebration of
the 10th birthday of its Huggable Heroes program, Build-A-Bear
Workshop is joining forces with the Jefferson Awards for Public Service, one of
the nation’s top community service recognition programs. Each Huggable Hero

networking and fundraising. The training and on-going support the Huggable
Heroes receive from their mentors enables these future leaders to grow
personally and scale their efforts globally. Entry forms are available at all Build-A-Bear Workshop stores in
the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada, and online at buildabear.com/huggableheroes.
