Here’s to the Hardworking Americans | 2024

When we asked for your nominations for this year’s Hardworking Americans campaign, we knew we would be introduced to a broad range of people who make a positive impact in our communities each day, but this year’s pool of nominees was so much more. We were moved by their stories, and the difference they make in the lives of the people they encounter each day. Our community is rich with people who are committed to strengthening their communities through hard work, passion, and care.

We are pleased to introduce you to the six winners of our Hardworking Americans campaign. These individuals make a positive impact every day and they embody the following attributes of a hard worker:



Each honoree received a $500 prize and $500 donated to a local 501(c )(3) charitable organization in their name, and each nominator received a $200 prize, as well.
