A backpacker microsite dedicated to nominating and voting on Heroes who are active in the community, save lives and constantly help others. A CMS driven site where a user can fill out a form to nominate their hero. Heroes on the site are voted on and prizes given out. Nominate your hero!
Starting with our first selection on May 15, Backpacker will choose a monthly hero who will receive an Eddie Bauer $100 gift certificate. The grand-prize winner, the Hero of the Year will be selected by your votes and announced on December 7, 2013. The winner will be rewarded with recognition from the Backpacker community and a $1,000 gift card from Eddie Bauer. Reward someone you know who has made a difference by nominating them today then send the others in your social media circles here to vote for them.
