Who’s your unsung local hero?

Know anyone who’s done something wonderful for the city, its communities or residents?

The Lord Mayor’s Civic Awards is a scheme developed by Sheffield City Council and  the Lord Mayor’s Office to honour Sheffielders who have been nominated by local people as being worthy of an award.

Sheffield has a range of awards including granting Freedom of the City and the Legends ‘superstar’ stars outside the Town Hall.

This scheme is one way of recognising Sheffielders, many of whom may be ‘unsung heroes’, for their hard work, dedication to others or success.

Sheffielders can nominate worthy recipients either on line or in writing. There are no categories for the award and it is also open to individuals of all ages who have helped to put Sheffield on the map by achieving national or international recognition. Each nomination must have two people supporting it.

Nominations are open until 5pm, St George’s Day, Friday April 23 2010. The evening awards ceremony will take place in the Town Hall on Tuesday May 11.

There will be up to six winners honoured each year and recipients of the award will receive a specially designed trophy created by students at Sheffield’s prestigious Freeman College who specialise in metal work and design.

Nomination forms and further details on the awards’ criteria are available online at www.sheffield.gov.uk/awards or by writing in to the Lord Mayor’s Office, Sheffield City Council, Town Hall, Pinstone Street, Sheffield, S1, 2HH.
