Examiner Community Awards
It’s one of Huddersfield’s most emotional and inspirational nights – and now it’s time to nominate those special people in your community.
The Examiner’s annual search for local shining stars, those unsung heroes and heroines who go above and beyond often without thanks or reward.
These special people are nominated by you and we need your help. Those chosen will be honoured at the Examiner Community Awards 2019 staged at the John Smith’s Stadium on Thursday, May 23.
Examiner editor Wayne Ankers said: “This year is a milestone for the Examiner Community Awards – it’s our 20th year. It is amazing to think that it’s two decades and in my time at the Examiner it’s been an honour and a privilege to meet so many deserving people who would otherwise go unrecognised.
“There is such incredible work that goes on in Huddersfield and so many selfless people who just want to help others. It’s humbling to know that in some small way we can say thank you to the people who make Huddersfield such a fabulous place to live.
“Community awards nights is one of my favourite nights of the year – and it’s sure to be emotional.
“We now need your help. It only takes a few minutes so please take the time the time to nominate someone to give them the recognition they deserve.”
Nominations are open now and the deadline is Friday, March 8.

Our work at Syngenta helps farmers all over the world to grow higher yields from their crops, providing a greater choice of quality food at an affordable price. We choose to support The Examiner Community Awards because they are a prestigious occasion which pay tribute to the dedication and passion of our local champions – people who go the extra mile and ask for nothing in return.
For our part, we continue to invest in our apprenticeship programme, providing employment opportunities for local people and we remain committed to keeping professional and skilled manufacturing jobs in Kirklees for many years to come. We work very hard to stay in touch with our local community and get involved wherever we can. Our Community Science Lab is accessible to schools and we are also active in our community through our Employees Community Gift Scheme and our annual Connecting Communities events. We do this because we aim to be the most collaborative team in our industry, earning trust through transparency and ethical conduct.
In support of the Examiner Community Awards, we appeal to all local leaders, community groups and volunteers to nominate the people that they believe deserve recognition as champions in our communities. Your nomination or entry to the Awards could just be the platform you need to springboard your community group into the limelight and gain the recognition you deserve, so don’t hold back!
