Young achievers and community heroes in the Wakefield district who make a positive difference to our communities will be celebrated in our ninth annual Love Where You Live awards.
You are invited to nominate people for the hard work they put in to make the Wakefield district a better place to live.
This year the contest will feature eight categories, with each of the shortlisted finalists in with the chance of winning a prize of £200, £100 or £50 thanks to our sponsors Sodexo.
Following feedback from last year’s awards, in 2020 we see the return of our working with young people category, which celebrates the work of individuals and groups across the district working with young people to help them reach their potential and make a difference. Our Best Garden award is now open to groups as well as individuals, so if you know of any community gardens make sure to nominate them!
Last year, the awards were completely digital and we received over 70 nominations and over 13,000 votes for our finalists!
WDH Chief Executive, Andy Wallhead said: “Our Love Where You Live Awards are a community-wide celebration of people who make this a district to be proud of and they become more successful every year. It is important that we celebrate the hard work and dedication that these people put into making their neighbourhoods friendlier, safer and even more enjoyable places to be. You can nominate yourself or anyone you think deserves recognition for their efforts.”
