MTN Ghana Foundation has extended the deadline for submission of entries for the MTN Heroes of Change Season 6, dubbed “Special 25th Anniversary Edition.”
According to the telecommunication giant, the extension is to enable the public to have ample time to scout and nominate their heroes.
Members of the public who have not nominated their Heroes are, thus, encouraged to do so before the new deadline of April 25, 2022.
Nominees should be individuals or institutions who have made a significant impact in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
The projects of the nominees should be in line with the focus areas of the MTN Ghana Foundation, which are; Health, Education and Economic Empowerment.
Nominations can be made at www.heroes.mtn.com.gh, or via WhatsApp 0549767070.
Process of selection
A three-member panel has been selected to oversee the MTN Heroes of Change project. After the close of nominations, all projects received will be reviewed and shortlisted by the panel. Shortlisted projects will be pruned to 10 and the stories of these 10 will be filmed and featured in a 13-week television show.
A total of GH₵200,000 has been set aside to reward the final 10 heroes. Each of the ten (10) finalists will receive a cash prize of GH₵20,000, a certificate, and a citation. Their stories will also be showcased on TV and on MTN social media channels.
Commenting on the MTN Heroes of Change “Special 25th Anniversary Edition,” the Executive Secretary of MTN Ghana Foundation, Mr. Robert Kuzoe said, “I am happy to see this edition of MTN Heroes of Change being dedicated to rewarding Covid-19 heroes. We want to honour the efforts of individuals and institutions who reached out to mitigate the impacts of Covid-19 in Ghana.
“We want to showcase their work and celebrate them for their selfless contributions during the most difficult times of our lives. We are urging the public to nominate those extraordinary people who took the initiative to support their communities during the pandemic,” he added.
