RESIDENTS are being urged to nominate Bromsgrove people they feel have had a positive impact on the district in the last two years.
There are a number of categories, relating to sports, arts and community achievements.
In sports, organiser Bromsgrove District Council is looking for outstanding volunteers, coach, club and sports volunteer.
The authority is also seeking nominees for the outstanding community sports project.
In the arts, there are categories for outstanding arts organisation, individual, youth organisation, young person in the arts and the lifetime achievement award – that has been named after Mary White who ran the Bromsgrove Festival for many years.
In the final community section, the council wants nominees for the best organisation, individual, youth community organisation, young person in the community and the Safer Bromsgrove Award.
Coun Rod Laight, whose portfolio covers leisure services, said: “Recognising the achievements of our residents is very important to us which is why we created these awards initially.
“Now in their second round, they will once again allow us to discover and celebrate the people that make up the true spirit of Bromsgrove.
“If you know of someone who deserves one of these awards, get nominating.”
Nominations officially opened this week and the deadline for entries is midnight on February 26.
A shortlist in each category will be determined by a panel and there will be a glittering awards ceremony at Artrix on April 19 where the winners will be revealed.
Nominations should be submitted via the online submission form www.bromsgrove.gov.uk/spiritofbromsgroveawards and a paper version is also available upon request for those without computer access.
