Celebrity of the year


Each year Hey U.G.L.Y. asks youth to nominate the celebrity they think was a great
role model. The celebrity can be an actor, singer, songwriter or sports figure.

FIRST:  Think about all the characteristics that make a good role model. Remember
it’s what you do, instead of what you look like, that matters the most.

SECOND:  Think about this past year and which celeb you feel deserves your nomination.

THIRD:  Email your nomination to PreventBullyingNow@heyugly.org
before the 12/15/21 deadline.  Make sure your nomination includes a few sentences
explaining why you think the celebrity deserves this honor. When writing about your celebrity role model,
mention a specific thing he or she did in 2021 that makes you think
youth across the world would benefit from their action/s.
