Here's how to nominate a local hero to win a Mazda Miata 100th Anniversary Special Edition
It's safe to say that 2020 has been a year of firsts for most of us. Whether it's working from home, not being able to visit friends and family, or becoming the teacher for your household. Some are going above and beyond and Mazda wants to recognize them.
The Mazda Heroes: Honoring the Human Spirit program looks to recognize individuals who have "selflessly dedicated themselves to their communities throughout 2020". Through Mazda Heroes, Mazda North American Operations will select 50 deserving people and provide each hero with a piece of its history, a Mazda MX-5 Miata 100th Anniversary Special Edition.
"This year marks Mazda's 100th Anniversary. We had hoped this time would be filled with moments of celebration and appreciation for our fans, employees and partners. But given the many tragic events of 2020, we decided to express, in another way, our brand's unique heritage of trying to make things better," MNAO President Jeff Guyton said.
"In April, we launched our Essential Car Care Program to give free oil changes and car cleaning to healthcare workers across the U.S. Throughout this initiative we heard how grateful our dealers and employees were to be in service to those selflessly giving back every day. This inspired us to develop the Mazda Heroes program, which will honor individuals supporting communities and share their stories in a moment when people desire inspiration in their lives."
Those nominated can be teachers, community members, doctors, nurses, first responders, faith leathers, restaurant owners, compassionate carers, or, really, any persons who have stood out for their efforts during this intense time.
Here's how to enter a nominee. Stories can be submitted now through Oct. 25 at www.MazdaUSA.com/mazda-heroes for a chance to be honored as a Mazda Hero. Fifty individuals will be selected based on their demonstrated selfless acts, creative approaches, and contributions to community. Honorees will be announced beginning Dec. 2.
