Join us in recognizing our community heroes by voting for your Patriot Organization of the Year upon registration or by nominating a Patriot of the Year. 25% of our event proceeds will be donated to the organization with the most votes and the charity of the Patriot of the Year’s choice. Past events have generated more than $7000 thru 2021 (we’re expecting around $10,000 in 2022) for Second District VFD & Rescue Squad, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, St. Baldrick Foundation Peyton Hero Fund, and Charlotte Hall Veteran’s Home. If you would like to nominate an organization to be added to the ballot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see the guidelines and form below to submit a Patriot of the Year nomination.
Patriot of the Year nomination guidelines:
– Submit a simple paragraph or two (500-word limit) describing why your nominee should be the Patriot of the Year. Keep in mind that the judges are 12- to 14-year-olds.
– Tell us how your nominee has demonstrated patriotism through some act or example.
– Neither the nominator nor the nominee is required to register for the LFS Patriot Day 5K.
– All nominations must be submitted by August 25, 2023.
The Patriot of the Year will be selected by our LFS middle school students based on the nominations only, without names. Patriot of the Year nominees will be notified by August 26, 2023 and are requested to be present at Little Flower School on September 9, 2023 to be recognized at the Opening Ceremony, or to designate a representative to receive the recognition on his or her behalf.
