The Civic Awards 2018

16 January 2018

The University of Hertfordshire is sponsoring the Civic Awards 2018. Make your nomination today.

The Civic Awards, Welwyn Hatfield Borough's highest accolade, are presented each year to people for a range of achievements. These include, but are not limited to, service to the community, bravery/courage, environmental work, arts and sport, education and heritage. Awards are given for a wide variety of reasons to people from all walks of life.

Candidates are nominated by Welwyn Hatfield's residents and from these nominations up to five award winners are selected by a judging panel chaired by the Mayor.

The common factor and criteria in all candidates is the extraordinary commitment, dedication, energy and effort they have shown in their particular field or towards achieving a particular goal.

Each award consists of a personalised trophy, a certificate and a cheque for £250.  The recipients' names are also entered into an official Civic Awards book where their achievement is recorded for posterity.

There are also two special categories:

  • Young Person's Award - This award for anyone aged 21 or under is sponsored by the University of Hertfordshire
  • Community Award - This award is sponsored by Mears
