COVID Courage

Profiles in Courage during the COVID-19 Crisis

This year, we will honor the frontline heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic with a special John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.

But, we need your help. Send us stories of people in your communities who are risking their own health to help heal the sick, protect our most vulnerable, and provide critical support services to citizens across the country.

From your submissions, the Profile in Courage Award Committee will choose several of the nominations to represent the courage of all those on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis at the Profile in Courage Award ceremony, which will be held when it is safe to gather in person.

Stories can be submitted here on our website or on social media using the hashtag #COVIDCourage. Nominations will be accepted through the end of August, and the representatives for this special Profile in Courage Award will be announced in the fall.

We wish everyone good health and safety during these uncertain times.
