Richardson Real Heroes wants to honor volunteers doing great work on behalf of Richardson, Richardson residents or Richardson schools. Nominations for the 2018 Real Heroes awards will close this Saturday, Dec. 23, at midnight. 

  • The service must benefit Richardson, its residents or schools
  • The individual receives no monetary compensation for the service
  • The individual does not receive significant public recognition for the service
  • Elected officials are not eligible

More detailed criteria and the nomination form are on the Richardson Real Heroes website at:

“These volunteers are already heroes,” said Barbara Berthold, Real Heroes committee chairman. “We just want to recognize and honor them, their efforts and their organization in a public way. This is a chance to get public recognition for someone whose dedication might otherwise go unnoticed.

“Richardson does a great job of highlighting visible people who have made contributions to our city. We’re picking up the slack with the unsung heroes.”

Real Heroes can be nominated in two classifications: Adult (post high school) and Youth (high school age).

The recipients will be honored with awards and a ceremony at the Richardson Civic Center in April 2018. Richardson Real Heroes is in its ninth year of operation and was founded and funded by The Richardson Coalition, a political action committee.
