Toledo, OH (PRWEB) February 7, 2011
These days, it seems like stories about the lack of money, jobs and excitement in Toledo and the surrounding area dominate the news. The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices have decided to politely ignore this bad news and start seeking out the good news instead.
The new “Good News Good People” contest will seek out nominations from Northwest Ohio citizens who know people going out of their way to create good news. Twice a month the law office will select a “Good News” winner, and that person will receive a personalized prize pack valued at over $100.
Steve Hartman, a Toledo native and CBS News correspondent who has hosted positive-news segments called “Everybody Has a Story” and “Assignment America,” inspired the office to seek out and share the stories of people in the community who go above and beyond to achieve tremendous things. For that reason, he has been selected as our first winner. He shares the honor with his mother, Glenna Hartman, who raised him to be the inspirational person he is. At the request of the Hartman family, a $100 donation will be made in their honor to Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
How The Contest Works:
·Nominate anyone who has a great story to tell—the volunteer at the local food shelter who puts in more time than anyone else, the teacher who stays late to help students with homework, the child who donated his or her allowance money to charity or anyone else who makes Northwest Ohio a better place to live.
·On the first and third Monday of every month the Charles E. Boyk Law Offices will announce one person as the newest winner and will share their story with the community.
·Each winner will receive a prize pack valued at over $100 that is tailored to the person’s story and interests. The winner will also receive a certificate commemorating their win.
·Nominators will be entered into a drawing for a “feel-good” prize of their own.
·Visit http://www.goodnewsgoodpeople.com/ to download a nomination form and to read the stories of past winners.
