Our heroes awards 2019

 

Our Heroes 2019 banner

 

After last year's success we're make Our Heroes bigger and better!

Entries are now closed as we await the shortlist from the judges!

We work in great areas, serving fantastic communities with brilliant people. And we want to celebrate it so we widened the scope of the awards to recognise those people making a difference in their local areas.

This year we've introduced a new award, which means there are now four awards – and prizes – up for grabs for our heroes:

Garden Guru Award

Does someone you know take extra pride in their garden, allotment or open space? Do you know someone who loves the outdoors and has done something amazing?

Wonderful Neighbour / Neighbourhood of the Year Award

Do you know anyone who has a kind heart and goes the extra mile for people? Or are a group of people rallying round to make a difference in your community?

Young Person / People of the Year Award

Do you know a young person or a group of young people (aged 24 or under) achieving great things? Are they doing something extraordinary, or deserve recognition for something?

Positive Change award (New)

Do you know someone who has turned a negative situation into something positive? Did they see that change was needed and decided to make a difference?

Just like last year, nominations can be from anyone, for anyone, not just Acis customers. If you know someone who is deserving of an award, simply fill in a nomination form for them.
