Award of $50,000 to honor a Greater Tampa Bay area, Florida individual in recognition of extraordinary contributions to the community, a commitment to giving back, and a history of volunteerism. The award will be donated to benefit a local nonprofit charity of the recipient's choosing.
Eligible nominees must live in one of the following counties: Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, and Sarasota.
The following is a non-exclusive list of factors to be considered by the Lightning Community Advisory Committee and the Lightning Foundation Board of Directors in selecting the Lightning Community Heroes:
- The degree to which the Hero has been a catalyst for a cause that meets basic human needs or enriches the lives of others
- The degree to which the Hero has exhibited dedication and selflessness
- The degree to which the Hero has made a special and significant impact on individuals, families, or the community-at-large
- The degree to which the Hero has gone "above and beyond" to serve and inspire others
- The degree to which the Nominator is able to convey the overall significance and impact of the Hero's work.
There is no one definition of what makes a Hero, but most tend to be unsung Heroes who are quietly doing amazing work for the improvement of the community.
