The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has opened nominations for the Star Council Awards 2022 as part of its work to recognise the achievements of the local (parish and town) council sector.
As the only awards in England recognising the contribution local councils make to their communities, the Star Council Awards
are an opportunity for local councils, councillors, young councillors, clerks, and county associations to showcase how they are
making a change in their communities.
The five award categories this year are:
• Clerk of the Year
• County Association Project of the Year
• Young Councillor of the Year
• Councillor of the Year
• Council of the Year (public vote)
Cllr Keith Stevens, NALC chair, said: “Last year our sector showed brilliant ongoing commitment to its communities by stepping up to support them through the pandemic and this was recognised in a record number of nominations received. In 2022, I urge anyone who knows true community champions who have made a positive difference in the last year to put those people forward for an award because they deserve to be celebrated.”
The winners will be announced at an online ceremony later this year. Entrants have until 27 May 2022 to submit their entries.
