Common Questions

Participants will have four weeks to nominate an everyday hero who they feel should be recognized for their dedication and hard work. A hero can be someone you know that works hard, goes above and beyond in their community or is a hero in some other way.

Each of the top 25 hero finalists and their nominators will receive a $50 Culver’s Gift Card. The Grand Prize winner will receive Custard for a Year and $500 for the charity of their choice.

Visit to submit a nomination. You’ll need to submit the person’s first and last name and their hero story. You’ll also have the option to submit a photo of the person and their local Culver’s location. If you don’t know all of this information, you can skip it. Culver’s will reach out to you should this person be selected as a finalist to verify more information.

Both you and the person you are nominating need to live in a Culver’s state and be 18 years old or older (19 in NE). See Official Rules for more detail.
