Nominations are now open for this year’s Provost Citizenship Awards to recognise the outstanding contributions of unsung local heroes in communities across North Lanarkshire.
After a hugely successful inaugural launch last year, we are now encouraging people to put forward individuals or groups deserving of recognition for the outstanding efforts they make to help change and improve the lives of others.
Provost of North Lanarkshire Jean Jones explained: “Throughout the health pandemic, we have really seen community groups and individuals step up to help others in our towns and villages. There are so many individuals and groups making exceptional contributions, but often they don’t get the praise they deserve. Through the Provost's Awards, we want to change that and let them know how valued they are.
“It might be through volunteering, charitable work, sporting contributions, community projects or anything else which makes a positive contributions to the lives of others. We want people to nominate those unsung heroes and organisations and tell us about the fantastic work they are doing in our communities.”
Nominations are open from Friday 4 June and close on Friday 16 July.
- The judging panel, including the Provost, the Council Chief Executive and councillors from across all political parties, will consider all relevant nominations.
- Nominees should reside, work or attend school/college within North Lanarkshire.
- Awards may be granted posthumously in recognition of recent achievement.
- You can nominate a relative for an award.
