Iowa Boy Scouts make Top 10 Most Inspiring


WATERLOO (KWWL) - You can practice for a disaster, but you can't practice being a hero.

Last June, a tornado ripped through the little Sioux Boy Scout Ranch in Iowa, killing four scouts and injuring dozens. Now the scouts are being honored for their bravery.

They are one of BeliefNet's "Top 10 Most Inspiring People of 2008".

Between Nov. 17 and Dec. 5, visitors can vote once daily for the person whose actions they find most inspiring.  Each day during the voting period, a different nominee will be featured on along with a gallery featuring photos and background for all of the nominees.  Visitors can view a video, read the nominee's bio and vote for the candidate of their choice.  Visitors to the site can vote as many times as they like, but only once daily. 

On Dec. 5, voting will end, and editors will choose the 2008 honoree from the three nominees receiving the most votes.  Beliefnet's Most Inspiring Person of the Year will be announced on Dec. 10.
