Do you know anyone who should be nominated for a St David’s Award?
Local Assembly Member, Hannah Blythyn has urged people in the area to put forward nominations to this year’s St David’s Awards.
The awards, now in their 7th year, recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of people from all walks of life in Wales.
Hannah Blythyn AM said, “Nominations are now open for the St David’s Awards and anyone can put forward someone they think deserves an award – whether they’re a colleague, friend, neighbour or family member.
The awards are a chance for us to recognise and celebrate our everyday heroes – the people making a difference at the heart of our communities across Delyn.
I’d very much like to encourage nominations from this area so our local champions can get the recognition that they deserve.”
Previous year’s awards have seen Theatr Clwyd shortlisted for the Culture Award and Mold resident, Peter Fuller rightly recognised as a recipient of the Bravery Award.
This year there are nine categories – Bravery, Culture, Enterprise, Innovation and Technology, Sport, Young Person, the First Minister’s Special Award and the 2 new categories – the St David
Humanitarian Award and the Community Spirit Award.
The St David Humanitarian Award will recognise an individual or group from Wales which has improved the lives of others, either in Wales or internationally.
The new Community Spirit Award will honour those people who have worked to improve their local community – it is designed to reward unselfish actions, which have served the
public or improved the lives of others.
Nominations are now open and close on 17 th October 2019. The finalists in each category will be announced on 13 th February 2020, with the awards being presented at a celebratory dinner at the Senedd on 19 th March.
