Ear: Hometown

Norwegian Cruise Line has launched an Encore Moments campaign — in advance of the debut of its newest ship, the Norwegian Encore — to recognize one hometown hero from each U.S. state (plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico), and each Canadian province.

The 64 winners receive a three-to-five-day cruise for two on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship, plus airfare and accommodations for an award ceremony on Dec. 16 in New York City. 

Everyone is encouraged to "nominate those who deserve an encore — applause — for the positive impact they have on their friends, family and communities." You have until Oct. 18 to nominate your choice (or yourself) at encoremoments.ncl.com

So … who will be Oregon's hero?
