NALC launches Star Council Awards 2022
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has announced that it will be rerunning the Star Councils Awards this year 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 2022 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: “The sector has shown brilliant commitment to its communities by stepping up to support them through the pandemic and was shown in a record number of entries last year. In 2022, we [NALC] want the awards to be even bigger! I urge anyone who knows community champions doing incredible work during the last year to put them forward for an award.”
The nomination period ends on 27 May 2022, and the winners will be announced at an online ceremony later this year.
