Do you know of a child or young adult that has made a difference
 in the life of companion animals? 

  We would like to hear about them! The Wisconsin Junior Heroes for Animals was developed by members of AWARE-Wisconsin to honor these special young people.  Please note that a Junior Hero can be nominated by more than one adult!

There are 4 age groups: Ages 4-6, Ages 7 to 10, Ages 11 to 14, Ages 15 to 17  

If you know a Junior Hero and would like to nominate them please fill out the Wis Junior Heroes for Animals submission form. Submissions can be scanned and sent via e-mail or sent to our PO Box OR you can submit your application on line!

If you are not the parent of the Junior Hero please get permission from their parents or guardian before submitting.

The award ceremony will be held at the Great Lakes Pet Expo on Saturday Feb 2nd 2019 at 1:30 PM. You do not have to be present to win the award but it sure adds to the fun for these wonderful Junior Heroes!

Past winners are welcome to apply!

We are accepting applications for the 2019 class of Junior Heros until  Jan 14th 2018. We will contact you when your application is received. Our panel of judges will review all of the Junior Hero nominees and will advise you by Jan 20th if your nominee has won.
