NEW MEXICO’S TRUE HEROES: After two highly successful campaigns in 2014 and 2015, the State of New Mexico, along with the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, is searching for the next round of New Mexico True Heroes - New Mexicans who make their communities a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
The New Mexico True Heroes Program is online now at NewMexico.org/TrueHeroes. The nomination form asks two key questions: “What makes this person a New Mexico True Hero?” and “How have the nominee’s efforts made a difference in his or her community?”

The honorees will take part in a series of community events in their hometowns and get special recognition during the festivities surrounding the 2016 Gildan New Mexico Bowl on Saturday, December 17.
