Each of the top 10 honorees — who were selected from over 9,000 submissions — will receive $25,000 and a ticket to the “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute” gala in Hollywood, CA, which will air at 9pmET on Thanksgiving (Nov. 26). At that event, the Hero of the Year will be named and awarded another $100,000.

The list is being revealed here.
