Have you ever heard of a 'river hero'?
They are everyday citizens who are quietly working to improve waterways in and around your community. Perhaps you know a close friend, neighbor or family member who is active in the community and a 'river hero' in their own right. If not, why not inspire local students, organizations or individuals looking to donate their time?
As a way to salute everyday 'river heroes,' Tom's of Maine has launched it's first-ever River Stories Contest. The contest provides a way for people to share river preservation stories and inspire others to learn more about watershed issues.
Visit www.youtube.com/group/riverstories to view the amazing stories gathered to date and learn more how the smallest steps can truly make the biggest impact within your community.
One lucky 'river hero' will even win a 2008 Toyota Prius Hybrid!

The Daily Green's Community News section is a forum for our audience to get the word out about issues that matter to them, enlist support, get help and advice, celebrate successes or share humor. The best submissions are personal (why I started this venture) short and to the point (400 words or so) and written in a style that speaks directly to the audience as peers (not like an ad or press release). E-mail submissions to email@example.com and include "community news" in the subject line. Photos are also welcome, provided the submitter has rights to publish the image. Be sure to include credit and caption information.
