He or she will be a special person who has done extra special things for the Marco Island community without receiving pay or expecting praise or recognition.

Nominees will be selected for community work that is not related to Rotary activities. The recipient will be someone who has not generally been honored and recognized by a public organization or testimonial. The recipient will also generally be unknown to a majority of the community.

The Unsung Hero will be recognized by award of a plaque, a $100 donation by the Sunrise Rotary to a charity of the Unsung Hero’s choice and 20 polio vaccines to Rotary International.
