The American Red Cross will be celebrating 100 years of service in Colorado in 2014, according to a press release. As part of its Century Celebration, the Red Cross Mile High Chapter will honor five Colorado heroes at its Century of Champions Red Cross Ball in March — and we need help identifying those heroes.

■ Disaster relief or response
■ Saving lives by administering CPR or using an AED
■ Military service or supporting those in the military
■ Preparing communities or individuals for the next disaster
■ International humanitarian service
Nominations may be submitted online at www.redcross.org/colorado-nominate. The deadline to submit nominations is Dec. 10.
