Winners of the borough's highest accolade are presented with a cheque for £250 as well as personalised trophy and certificate. The recipients' achievements are also recorded in an official Civic Awards book.

There are two additional categories -- the Community Award, sponsored by Mears, and the Young Person's Award for those under the age of 21, sponsored by the University of Hertfordshire.

The deadline for all nominations is Monday 31 January 2022.

Up to five winners will be selected by a judging panel chaired by the Mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, Councillor Peter Hebden. The awards will be presented at a special ceremony during the Annual Council Meeting in May.

Mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, Councillor Hebden, said:

As Mayor, I'm privileged to meet so many people who give up their time to make a difference in the community or who have shown exceptional dedication to achieving their goal in education or sport.

"It's easy to nominate someone for a Civic Award and they are a great way opportunity to say thank you and show our appreciation of some of Welwyn Hatfield's unsung heroes
