As part of its continued commitment to supporting the community this award is granted to an individual, or a group of individuals, that have made an outstanding contribution to the village.
In particular, this year, we encourage nominations for individuals/groups who have provided support to the community, or individuals within it, during the Covid19 pandemic.

Eligibility:                  The award is open to any resident/s of Northowram, who (must) reside in the village - other than the overall                                     winner from the previous year.  

Nominations:               can be made by any resident/s of Northowram, who (must) reside in the village, other than members of the                                      NSE Committee.  Nominations should be submitted on the form available here or from any member of the                                      committee. Forms will also available in the local shops and pubs (after lock-down).

                                    Each nomination can be backed by up to two supporting statements from other Northowram residents.                                            Such supporting statements must be signed by each supporter along with their full name and address.

Judging:         Nominations will initially be vetted by an NSE Sub-Committee for a short list to be brought to the full NSE                                      Committee, and, if a Nominee is known to any Committee member, they will declare their interest.  

Award:          If the award is for an individual or a group, the award will be £100 of vouchers plus an engraved trophy.

The winner of the award will be announced in May 2021, at the start of the Northowram Scarecrow Event.
