The goal of the Michigan NENA Young Hero committee is to recognize a child 12 years of age or younger at the time of the call. 

In the past we have focused on the child who has saved a life and had a positive outcome.  

Our views have changed, in that, we want to promote 9-1-1 to children and recognize and encourage them for using the system to help others.  

Nominate your child callers.

The only requirements are:

  • The event must have occurred between January 1, 2017 – March 1, 2019
  • The child must be 12 years old or younger at the time of the call.
  • The child must have dialed 9-1-1 to save a life, property or report a crime
  • The event must have a positive outcome
  • The family must consent to the nomination
  • An audio of the call must be included in the nomination
  • Nominations forms must be received by March 15, 2019
  • If you aren’t sure if your child caller qualifies, submit your nomination form and let the committee decide.
