What better way to honor those family and friends who care for wounded service members than by noting their efforts in a one to two-minute video? Then, submit that video to a contest “hero at home” sponsored by the non-profit organization, the Pentagon Federal Credit Union Foundation .
The video submissions will be used to select a caregiver of a wounded service member or veteran to be honored at the foundation’s 8th Annual Night of Heroes Gala on May 24.
It includes caregivers of those recuperating at the hospital and after they’ve returned home.
To enter, contestants must upload on YouTube a one- to two-minute video about a “hero at home” who went above and beyond to care for an injured service member or veteran, then complete the entry form with the video’s URL. Contestants also must “like” the PenFed Foundation’s official fan page.
Service members and veterans, their caregivers or a third-party can submit a nomination. All submitted videos will be featured on the PenFed Foundation’s YouTube contest page.
Officials will accept entries through April 12, and will announce the five finalists April 16. They’ll then invite the public to help choose the winner on the PenFed Foundation’s YouTube finalists’ page through April 22, and announce the winner April 23.
