Vote for the Little Sioux Scout Ranch Scouts – Most Inspiring Person of the Year

 

The Boy Scouts involved in the Little Sioux Scout Ranch tornado have been nominated for beliefnet?s ?Most Inspiring Person of the Year? award.

 

After a tornado ripped through their camp near Blencoe, Iowa, last June, dozens of Boy Scouts, ages 13 to 18, performed bravely and selflessly. As their fellow scouts lay bleeding and emergency workers struggled to reach their remote camp, these teenagers dug survivors from the rubble, performed first aid, and comforted the injured.

 

The Boy Scouts who survived the tornado?and those who did not?are nominated as Beliefnet?s Most Inspiring People of the Year for refusing to give in to self-pity, fear, or panic in the chaos of a great disaster.

 

There are 10 nominees for this award, and the Scouts have a real chance to win. As I write this post, the Boy Scouts are in second place with 25% of the votes, the winner only has 28%.

 

To vote for the Boy Scouts as the most inspiring, visit http://www.beliefnet.com/Inspiration/Most-Inspiring-2008/vote.aspx. Voting ends on December 4th! You must vote today!

 

The winner of this award receives a donation to the charity of their choice.
