TIME is running out to include your entry for the chance to be crowned Glasgow‘s Community Champion.
Residents have until Thursday, March 1, to send in their free entry for the north east division of the city-wide awards.
The eight categories for entry are: sports; team; individual; senior; young; health and well-being; uniformed services; and public services.
Anyone can be nominated for the awards – perhaps the coach of a local sports club or a hardworking parent, a police officer who has saved lives, a nurse who goes above and beyond the day job or a pensioner who campaigns for better services.
A list of nominees will be published in the Evening Times and on our website in the run-up to each event and the finalists, decided by a judging panel made up of representatives from the awards’ partners – Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Community Planning Partnership, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and City Building – will take their place in our hall of fame.
The event comprises of three heats, north east, north west and south, before all the nominees come together for the glitzy bash in November.
It’s the most uplifting event on the city’s calendar, as Evening Times Editor Donald Martin explains.
“The Glasgow Community Champions Awards have been giving our city’s superheroes their moment in the spotlight for more than a decade,” he said.
“Each year, we are overwhelmed by the number of selfless individuals and brilliant groups working hard to make life better for others, and we know 2018 will be no exception.
“They could be volunteers or emergency service workers; schoolchildren or pensioners; grass roots sports coaches or inspirational community leaders – whoever you think deserves to be crowned a Community Champion, we want to hear about them.”
