Congratulations to Our Preemie Power Finalists

Preemie Power 2014 We are excited to announce the finalists for Hand to Hold’s Fourth Annual Preemie Power Photo and Essay Contest as Premature Awareness Month gets started! The contest is held each year to raise awareness for the challenges that NICU families face and celebrate the bravery and resilience of each little super hero.

These finalists will move on to the second round of voting where a panel of judges, each nominated by a NICU family for the NICU Heroes Award, will determine the final winners for each category and an overall winner. Winners for all the awards will be announced November 19, 2013.
