The Huggable Heroes program recognizes young leaders between the ages of 8 and 18, doing extraordinary things in their communities or around the world to 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 will be paired with a mentor through the Jefferson Awards GLOBECHANGERS system for a year in order to develop valuable skills for writing business plans, 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
