Default Steelers, Hines Ward nominated for United Nations peace award

Steelers, Hines Ward nominated for United Nations peace award

The Steelers and wide receiver Hines Ward have been nominated in the professional sports team and professional athlete categories for the inaugural United Nations NGO Positive Peace Awards in recognition of their positive contributions to world peace.

The Steelers were nominated by both the Salvation Army and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“We are honored to be nominated for such a prestigious award which recognizes the importance of helping those less fortunate than ourselves,” Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement released by the club. “We have always believed that it takes teamwork to make a true impact in the community and are proud that our efforts are viewed as worthy of being considered for such high distinction.”

Ward's nomination came from Pearl S. Buck International Inc., which cited his work in Korea to bring influential Koreans to change the perception of the country's biracial population.

“Hines Ward changed the cultural landscape of Korea,” said Janet Mintzer, president and CEO of Pearl S. Buck International, said in a statement. “After Japanese invasions, Korea placed high value on being pure-blooded Koreans, creating prejudice of biracial people. As a successful biracial Korean-American, he returned to Korea, creating media attention which sparked a cultural shift. “

The winner of the sports categories for 2010 United Nations NGO Positive Peace Award will be announced in mid-December.
