CNN's 9-year-old program honors everyday people for their extraordinary efforts to change the world. The 10 finalists each received $25,000, while the person picked "Hero of the Year" from an online vote will get an additional $100,000 for his or her cause.
The winner from online voting will be announced Sunday night during a program that will honor all the finalists.
