Pride of Shropshire Awards 2014
The search begins once again for the ‘Pride of Shropshire’ . . . people, communities or organisations who go the extra mile to make the county proud.
This is the seventh year the Shropshire Star has run the awards, and for the 2014 competition it welcomes on board a new headline sponsor, Telford College of Arts and Technology, and several other high-profile category sponsors.
Judges are seeking to recognise courage, learners, good neighbours, carers, environmental champions, and special young people. There are also awards for a ‘local hero’ from the armed forces, for young people playing key roles in their communities, and for a People’s Champion who is an all-round pillar of support in their local town or village.
So now, it’s over to YOU to nominate a person, group or people or organisation deserving of recognition . . . or put yourself forward.
As the county begins its journey on the long and slow road out of the economic doldrums, it’s the perfect time to hunt down good news stories and deliver a timely dose of optimism.
Let’s recognise and celebrate the contributions of those who are often least likely to seek out the limelight, but without whom the quality of life in Shropshire would be that much poorer.
Candidates can nominate themselves, or have their name put forward by another person, such as a family member or work colleague. It doesn’t matter how the inspirational stories get to us, if they’re worth telling.
We are looking for winners in nine categories from which one overall champion will be crowned.
You can nominate by going to the Award Categories section and selecting the relevant category completing the online nomination form.
Successful nominees will be selected by a panel of judges and the finalists invited to the awards night at Shrewsbury Town Football Club in July.
The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
