Do you know someone who goes above and beyond to make Milton Keynes a better place? The MK People Awards are your chance to celebrate the people who make MK great!
Held in our 50th year, the awards honour the outstanding achievements and commitment of the people who live here. Award categories will recognise achievements in six categories, Young Achiever, Sport, Health, Charity, Diversity and Equality, and Community. An overall award winner will also be named.
The awards are being organised by the council, in partnership with MKFM and our friends at MK Citizen, BBC Three Counties Radio, Heart.
The awards came about after Councillor Alex Walker raised a motion in Council to hold a set of awards that could mark MK’s 50th year. He said: “This has been a great year for Milton Keynes. Our birthday celebrations have put us on the map locally and nationally.
“We know that it’s our people that make MK what it is, so what better way to bring the year to an end than with the MK People Awards. I hope everyone will get nominating so we can give these special people the recognition they deserve.”
Visit www.mkpeopleawards.com to find out more and to make a nomination. Hard copies of the form are also available from the council’s Civic and Saxon Court offices, and local libraries.
The closing date is 12 October 2017.
Finalists will be invited to an awards ceremony on Monday 13 November at the council’s Civic Offices where the overall award winner will be announced.
