Build-A-Bear Workshop wants to recognize young leaders who make positive contributions in their communities or around the world. This year, 10 Huggable Heroes, between the ages of 8 and 18, from the United States and Canada, will be selected and honored for their good deeds. Each of the ten Huggable Heroes will receive a prize worth $10,000 ($7,500 in the form of an educational scholarship and $2,500 from the Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation to be donated to the charity of each winner’s choice.)

Each Huggable Hero (along with a parent) will win a trip to St. Louis to visit the company’s World "BearQuarters." The winners will be able to socialize, be honored for their contributions to society, and appear in the 2011 Build-A-Bear Huggable Heroes calendar.

    My son has not been to Build A Bear yet. It’s on the to-do list but sadly, the economy has hit us pretty hard.

    I’ve never bought anything from Build A Bear, but from what I hear it’s a very generous and responsible company. The Huggable Heroes program is admirable.
