Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 8 for the Build-a-Bear Workshop's 2008 Huggable Heroes contest.

The contest seeks youths, 18 years of age and younger, who are making positive differences in their communities and beyond. Anyone can submit nominations — parents, grandparents, other relatives, friends, teachers or even the nominees themselves. Twelve winners will be featured on a 2009 calendar. Nomination forms are online at or at any workshop store.
