Nomination Process

There are three categories for the High Sheriff’s Citizenship Award – Adult, Young Citizenship and the Group Award. These awards are spilt across the 3 administrative areas of the county: North Bedfordshire, Central Bedfordshire, and South Bedfordshire, including Luton.

The criteria for the three awards are:

Adult Award:

Somebody who gives of their time unstintingly, whether this be in an organising or caring capacity. Or to be a person that carries out help and assistance in any way, even thought this might be seen as a minor role to that person, but in fact their loyalty and care makes a great deal of difference to the wellbeing of others.

Young Person’s Award:

A young person being a member of their school, youth organisation or junior section of an adult society who has excelled or made an outstanding contribution, to the best of their ability to the well being of that school/club/organisation and whose willingness, determination and caring attitude in everything they do and achieve is an inspiration to others.

Group Award:

A group which has added value to the community on a small or large scale, but which has clearly made an impact in their chosen field. It might be a new group which has filled a gap for meeting needs or be long established.
