The 11 categories are blood services, community impact, disaster services, emergency medical assistance, firefighters, global citizenship, good Samaritans, law enforcement, military personnel, nurses and youth.

The Red Cross stipulates that heroic acts by nominees must have taken place during the 2018 calendar year or be ongoing. Candidates also must work or live in these counties: Boone, Bureau, Carroll, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Jo Daviess, LaSalle, Lake, Lee, McHenry, Ogle, Putnam, Stephenson, Whiteside, Will and Winnebago.
