Jimmy Wayne Nominated for Energizer Hall of Fame
He just keeps going, and going, and going, and ....
Jimmy Wayne has been selected as one of the 100 nominees for the 2011 Energizer "Keep Going" Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame celebrates those who make a positive impact on the world with their determination, boundless energy and never-quit spirit.
Jimmy logged 1,700 miles on foot when he walked from Nashville, Tenn. to Phoenix, Ariz. last year on his project Meet Me Halfway campaign. His Street Team member, LuAnn Tacke, nominated the singer for his efforts in raising awareness for at-risk youth and his mission to end teen homelessness.
The inductee of the 2011 Energizer "Keep Going" Hall of Fame will receive a $10,000 cash prize, plus an additional $5,000 donation to his or her favorite charity.
The Top 10 finalists will each receive a $1,000 donation to a charity of the finalist's choice and a flip camcorder to help in their campaign efforts to become the 2011 Energizer "Keep Going" Hall of Fame Inductee.
"Being nominated for the Energizer award is super exciting," Jimmy tells The Boot. "If I win this contest it would be another step to raising awareness to homeless youth. The praise and credit belongs to the fans who entered me into this contest and rallied supporters. The money would certainly go towards project MMH. Keep your fingers crossed."
Jimmy has now made it into the semi-final round. Fans can cast their votes for Jimmy online through the Energizer Facebook page or by clicking here. The Top 10 nominees will be announced April 4. Voting will end March 25.
