The Indiana Pacers are now accepting nominations for the 2009-10 Indiana Pacers Indiana Heroes Award Program presented by Veolia Water.

The Indiana Heroes program presented by Veolia Water serves as one of the premier community outreach programs of the Indiana Pacers. This program honors an individual(s) who have made an overwhelming impact on the lives of others and who, through their unique commitment and humanitarian spirit, have made exceptional and lasting contributions to our community and our State.

Anyone can nominate a neighbor, friend or relative who is a firefighter, policeman, rescue worker, or just an everyday hero like a teacher, nurse or community leader making a difference. Nominations must include the nominee’s name, street address, city, state, zip code, phone number and email address (optional), along with a short description of why this nominee is deserving of the award. The description should include examples of the nominee’s level of commitment, as well as any lasting contributions to the community.

Nomination forms may be submitted via email at INDIANAHEROES@PACERS.COM or via regular mail at the address below:

Indiana Pacers
125 S. Pennsylvania Street
Indianapolis, IN 46204

Each award recipient will receive four tickets to an Indiana Pacers home game, where they will be recognized during a special on-court presentation. In addition, each recipient will also receive a “medal of honor”, and a commemorative photo recognizing their humanitarian spirit.

Winners will be chosen on an on-going basis throughout the season by a selection committee, who will select the nominees, who in their sole opinion are the best of the eligible nominations submitted, based upon the level of commitment, as well as any lasting contributions, to the community.

Award recipients will be notified by e-mail and/or telephone at least one-week prior to their recognition date.
