Jeff’s Heroes is Back & All-New in 2023!

The Jeff Schmitt Auto Group is back with our Jeff’s Heroes initiative! This time, we’re choosing FOUR FINALISTS throughout the year; one of whom will be named the ultimate Jeff’s Hero for 2023!

That means, more nominations, more voting for your favorite, and most importantly, even more recognition and prizes for our local community heroes!

Now, instead of two Jeff’s Heroes winners, we’ll be able to choose, celebrate, and reward FOUR different finalists in 2023!

Each of the four finalists will receive a $5,000 CASH PRIZE and have the chance to be named the ultimate Jeff’s Hero for 2023 – receiving the grand prize of $20K towards a new or used vehicle, plus another $10K in CASH!

What Is Jeff’s Heroes?

We started our Jeff’s Heroes Initiative in 2021 after hearing some truly inspiring stories shared with us by community members on social media. These were stories of local heroes, military veterans, first responders, medical professionals, and ordinary people giving so much of themselves to help others in need.

The stories of these individuals stirred us into action and we committed ourselves to do even more in support of our neighbors in the Greater Dayton community.

In 2021, we were thrilled to see the outpouring of support for each of our nominees and the incredible community response and involvement to cheer on these tremendous people.

The best part is, you have the say in who becomes a Jeff’s Heroes finalist! Each nominee we select comes straight from you, and each finalist is chosen as a result of public voting. Our three previous heroes – Nicole Adkins, Connie McEldowney, and Shawn Egbert were chosen based directly on your votes!

Ultimately, this is an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the heroes among us; to lift up those in our community who lift others by their own good work and efforts.

We hope that you’ll join us once again to share your stories and put a spotlight on the best of us to help select our 2023 Jeff’s Hero!

Who Should I Nominate?

We will be looking for people who may incorporate the following traits: inspirational stories, strong local leaders, selfless individuals who continually put others first, people suffering from the impacts of COVID-19 on the community, Teachers, first responders, military, etc.…

Each of the four finalists will receive a $5,000 CASH PRIZE and have the chance to be named the ultimate Jeff’s Hero for 2023 – receiving the grand prize of $20K towards a new or used vehicle, plus another $10K in CASH!
