Recognizing exceptional Wisconsonites for their selfless contributions
Wisconsin is home to some of the finest Midwestern hospitality and some of our nation’s friendliest people. Throughout the state, in small towns and big cities alike, countless individuals are eager to go the extra mile, take a stand for causes in which they believe, and use their time, effort and ideas to help make Wisconsin a better place.
On behalf of the State of Wisconsin, the first lady would like to recognize these exceptional people and make their selfless contributions known. If you know someone who is voluntarily making Wisconsin a better place, please nominate that person for a Wisconsin Heroes Award.
Recognition is given to outstanding Wisconsin residents. The first lady visits and presents the award to the winner to say thank you for his or her willingness, compassion, and commitment to the betterment of our state.
