Every year across the country, a select group of teens are nominated to be a part of Teen of Impact because of their passion and drive to make a difference. This 9-week blind competition is relentlessly focused on heart health. Launching on National Wear Red Day, nominees work to build campaign plans, recruit Impact teams, and inspire their networks to support the American Heart Association’s lifesaving mission.
This special group of teens will be celebrated for the overall impact they have on our mission and community. The teen who brings their network together to have the largest impact locally will be named a local 2023 Teen of Impact Award Winner. Additionally, the nominee who makes the greatest impact nationwide will be named the American Heart Association 2023 National Teen of Impact Award Winner.
