Today marks the first day of the Our Bodies Ourselves Women’s Health Heroes Awards. Now through May 1, we’re accepting nominations for your health heroes — activists, doctors, bloggers, midwives, teachers …

All the info you need to proceed, including submission guidelines, can be found at http://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/heroes.asp

Video and text entries are welcomed. Readers are invited to rate the entries by awarding stars; your vote will help determine the entry that receives the Audience Choice Award.

Go here — http://www.ourbodiesourblog.org/blog/category/womens-health-heroes — to view and vote on entries. Voting is open through May 8.

OBOS staff will select the other winning entry. Winners will be announced May 11.

Both the winning entrants and their health heroes will receive a set of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” titles, including “Our Bodies, Ourselves”; “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause”; and “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Pregnancy and Birth” — all of which will be signed by organizational co-founders, book editors and contributors. In addition, the health heroes will receive an engraved award for display.

Please help us spread the word by blogging about the contest and adding a widget to your site. Questions? Contact Wendy Brovold, OBOS communications and marketing manger — wendy@bwhbc.org or 617-245-0200 ×13.
