Who are Faribault's Hidden Gems?

Look around!  There are people among us doing virtuous acts avery day! 

Who do YOU recommend?


Many people do remarkable things with no recognition or expectation of reward.

Help us find the Hidden Gems!




You can promote this nomination opportunity with groups and individuals throughout all areas of Faribault – education, business, non-profits, faith communities, and community development – and all ages including children, youth, adults, and senior citizens.

The Virtues Project is partnering with the Faribault Daily News to select and honor Hidden Gems.

When a new person is selected, plans begin to host a surprise for them to honor their virtues and give family, friends and co-workers a chance to share stories about the new Hidden Gem.

Hy-Vee Bakery sponsors each surprise party by providing a cake for the celebration. 

Each honoree also receives a beautiful inscribed gem from The Daily News and

Virtues Reflection Cards from the local Virtues Project Steering Committee.
