Stirling Council’s Provost awards take place every 2 years, and it is now possible to nominate people for the 2020 award.

If you know of anyone who believe should be recognised in one of the below categories please contact me via majurya@stirling.gov.uk and I will be happy to help with the nomination process. I successfully assisted in having some recognised for ‘Special Achievement’ for the 2018 awards, and would be happy to help more people be recognised for their efforts.

Business

Nominations are sought on behalf of individuals in both large and small businesses who have made substantial contribution to the Stirling Council area.

Your nominee should have embraced at least one of the following:

Nominations are sought on behalf of individuals aged 11–18 who have made a notable or substantial contribution to the community which they serve.

Special Achievement

It is possible that persons may be considered eligible for nomination by way of having made a substantial contribution to the life of the Council’s area. It has, therefore, been agreed that a category of Special Achievement be instituted in order that individuals are not excluded from the process. Nominations are therefore sought on behalf of those individuals who may not fall into any of the above categories. These nominations will be considered exceptionally on their merits.

Tourism

The winner of this award will be a dedicated and passionate promoter of Stirling as a visitor destination. They may be an employee or business owner who goes above and beyond to inspire visitors to explore more and stay longer. They may be a prolific blogger about Stirling with a huge audience, a creative and dynamic tour guide or someone who simply dedicates time and energy to showcase the best of Stirling to visitors.
