Do you know an everyday person changing the world? They’re your neighbors, your friends, your colleagues, your parents.
They are CNN Heroes, each of whom shows how one person can truly make a difference.
CNN encourages you to tell the world about these everyday people changing the world — by nominating them at CNNHeroes.com. Taking a few minutes to share their story with us could propel them to worldwide recognition.
It’s easy to nominate them as a CNN Hero. Here are some suggestions we hope will help you in crafting your nomination.
- Nominations must be in the name of a single individual, at least 13 years of age, whose accomplishment occurred (or continued) after November 1, 2013.
- Groups and organizations are ineligible for consideration.
- Self-nominations will not be accepted
Think about what makes your hero special.
Ask yourself: What makes my nominee unique? What specific accomplishment has he or she achieved that is truly remarkable? What impact has his or her work had on others? We encourage you to watch videos of previous CNN Heroes to familiarize yourself with the achievements of the inspiring individuals we honor as “everyday people changing the world.”
Take a look at the nomination form.
Review the information requested about yourself, your nominee and his or her work before filling out your submission.

Take your time and write from the heart. Remember: What you share — in your own words — is the most important factor in advancing a nomination for further consideration.
If your nomination has been successfully transmitted, you’ll see a “thank you” message on your screen.
