Hero of the Year: Pushpa Basnet. Butte's Leo McCarthy was among the 10 nominees.
Basnet was honored for pulling children out of Nepal's prisons, where they are imprisoned with their parents because they have no other guardians, and no where else to go.
McCarthy was nominated for starting Mariah's Challenge after his daughter was hit and killed by a drunken driver in 2007.
