Young leaders can win $10,000 prize

Build-A-Bear Workshop invites young leaders ages 8 to 18 to enter its Huggable Heroes program for a chance to win $10,000.

The national program, timed during Youth Leadership Month, is for youths who provide extraordinary service to their communities and/or around the world. Ten selected winners will get $10,000 – which includes an educational scholarship, a donation to a charity of their choice, and a mentoring scholarship to support their charitable entrepreneurships.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is teaming with the Jefferson Awards for Public Service, which will provide training and ongoing support through a GLOBECHANGERS mentorship program. Entries are available at www.buildabear.com/huggableheroes or by picking up an entry form at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores.
