Siouxpercon 2021: Heroes Homecoming
From the very beginnings of SiouxperCon, our goal is creating an inclusive, friendly event that celebrates nerd culture while giving back to worthy charities in our community as part of our non-profit mission.
It hit all of us hard to have to cancel our event in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but like all of our friends and neighbors in the Sioux Falls and wider community, we were heartened by the efforts of “real life” heroes who made life better in a difficult time.
As a result, this year SiouxperCon 2021: Homecoming Heroes aims to celebrate those true heroes in our life, from first responders and medical professionals to essential workers who showed up every day to do their job despite the pandemic. We also want to celebrate all of the dedicated non-profits in our community who tirelessly work and volunteer to serve populations in need to create a brighter future for us all.
To this end, we are looking for nominations from the community from your heroes from the past year. We will use the nominations to create a video running on all of our social media, this website and at the event in the October featuring these local heroes. Please nominate your hero, whether it was someone who really went out of their way to help the community during the pandemic, such as medical professional or first responder or an essential worker or local business, or nominate a volunteer, volunteer group or non-profit that you feel makes a real difference in the lives of our community.
Please keep in mind when filling out the nomination form that your written information and the photos you provide will be used as part of the video slideshow we create. The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2021 by 5 pm CST.
