COURTS Trinidad and Tobago (Unicomer) is looking for individuals in communities across TT who, through their actions, make life better for those around them.
The furniture and retailing brand will open submissions on July 14 for its first ever Courts Heroes Initiative. This project will seek to recognise “the selfless giving and work" of those across the country who are making a difference in the lives of others.
The brand is looking for people who have made a social impact through their work, their selflessness and the ability to replicate their initiatives.
It is hoped that this will make people aware of the people doing good deeds in TT and also bring about social change, said Nicole Loney-Mills, Courts social responsibility officer.
The campaign was first run in Costa Rica in 2018 and will now be replicated in the Caribbean, beginning with TT and Jamaica.
Submissions will be open from July 14-August 2. People can submit their nominees for the Courts Hero by either going to Courts branches in their communities or online.
From August 2-16 the submissions received will be screened and, from those, narrowed to eight people.
The public will learn more about the chosen eight through Newsday and will then be invited to vote for their Courts Hero from September 9-30.
All eight will be invited to an announcement on the Courts Hero initiative on October 11. The top three nominees will receive awards in cash or kind, and the work of the others will also be recognised.
