Impact Story Of The Decade: Submit Your Nominations

The past decade (2001- 2010) has been defined by Impact news stories that have moved us and inspired us. From the reaction to the earthquake in Haiti, to outreach after Hurricane Katrina, it has been an era for significant impact news.

In honor of the new year, we're asking HuffPost readers, what was the most important Impact news story of the first ten years of the 21st century? Please submit your nominations below, or tweet them using the hashtag #storyofthedecade or email them to submissions@huffingtonpost.com.

We will soon post the most nominated entries, and then you can vote on the story of the decade.
