The contest is described in the following way:

In the midst of the global pandemic, heroes have risen to the challenges of keeping our communities safe, healthy and supplied with the necessary goods and services to continue daily life. Now, Cedar Point is giving back and celebrating those everyday heroes with a chance to be awarded the unprecedented Ticket of a Lifetime – a ticket that affords the recipient lifetime admission to Cedar Point and Cedar Point Shores Waterpark.

The everyday heroes of our communities include frontline nurses, doctors, EMT’s, caregivers, supply chain workers, parents who are now self-taught teachers, grocery store and retail workers, neighbors and anyone who’s gone above and beyond to help others during these challenging times.

Now through May 29, 2020, Cedar Point invites communities and individuals to nominate their hero for a chance to win a Ticket of a Lifetime. In addition, each winning hero can select three friends or family members to receive a Ticket of a Lifetime, for a total of four per hero.

Nominate an everyday hero by submitting a photo of the hero, plus a few words about how he or she is making an impact in the community and why he or she should win a Ticket of a Lifetime. All nominations must be submitted by May 29. A total of ten heroes will be selected by a Cedar Point panel of judges and announced on June 11, 2020 on cedarpoint.com.
