General Motors Seeks to Reward Local Heroes from Illinois

OTOH 2012 Final Logo without background

Now in its second year, General Motors once again wants to honor, recognize and reward local Illinois heroes with the Our Town, Our Heroes program. Teachers, coaches, veterans, parents, friends and everyone in between who inspire others and drive positive change will be spotlighted by the program in 2012.

Beginning now and continuing through November, Illinois residents can visit and nominate someone who inspires them and is making a difference in their community. Finalists will be chosen once per month, and the public can log on and vote for their favorite hero. The hero with the most votes, and the person who nominated him or her, will each receive a one-week loan of an all-new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle and a special vehicle delivery with their family and friends. New to the program this year, the winning hero will also receive $500 in gift cards, and the second place hero and his or her nominator will each receive a one-week vehicle loan.

For more information on the Our Town, Our Heroes program, to read about the 2011 hero winners, and to nominate heroes in your neighborhood, visit and follow on Twitter @DrivingMidwest.
