Nominate a huggable hero

The search is on for incredible kids to be named the 2008 Huggable Heroes.

A Huggable Hero is any young person, 18 years of age and younger, who is making a positive difference in their communities or around the world.

"The Huggable Heroes program is embarking on its fifth year," said Build-A-Bear Workshop® Founder and Chief Executive Bear Maxine Clark. Nominations will be accepted for Huggable Heroes, from Dec. 7 through Feb. 8.

Build-A-Bear Workshop will honor 12 Huggable Heroes.

Each Huggable Hero will receive a prize worth $10,000. In addition, they each will receive a trip to a special location where the winners will be honored for their good deeds, meet the other Huggable Heroes and participate in a photo shoot for the 2009 Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Heroes calendar.

Nomination forms are available at any Build-A-Bear Workshop store or online at www.buildabear. com.
