#Hero of the Year Presented by Weather Channel

The Shorty Award for #LifeSavingHero

The social web has allowed real, life-saving heroes, who may have otherwise gone unnoticed to become recognized for the life-saving work they're doing. Twitter and social media help give an inside look at how heroes handle the dangerous conditions and situations they face on a daily basis.

The #LifeSavingHero Shorty Award, presented in partnership with The Weather Channel's Coast Guard Alaska, a show about an elite team that risks their lives in search and rescue missions in harsh weather conditions, will be awarded to a real life hero using Twitter and the social web to save lives. Coast Guard members, firefighters, police officers, or anyone else who’s helped to save a life using social media are eligible. If a celebrity is clearly using social media to actively save lives through supporting a major cause they will be eligible. They must have an indication of this in their bio, tweets and the nominations they receive.
