Proud of Bucks Awards

The Proud of Bucks Community Awards celebrate Buckinghamshire’s communities that have demonstrated caring, creativity and commitment towards their local areas. The awards recognise and applaud outstanding community contribution carried out by local individuals, groups and organisations.

Nominations are now open for the Proud of Bucks Award 2021 – generously sponsored by The Clare Foundation.

This year, each of Buckinghamshire’s 16 Community Boards will be celebrating local people, groups and organisations in the following three categories:

  • Buckinghamshire Community Award Best Adult Contribution - For an individual (aged over 21) who has contributed to their local community during 2021 by improving lives for others or improving their local environment.
  • Buckinghamshire Community Award Best Young Person Contribution – For young people (under age 21) who have had a positive impact on the local community or peers through community engagement or activism.
  • Buckinghamshire Community Award Best Community Group Contribution - Recognises and celebrates a group in the community board area who has made a clear and positive impact on the community during 2021.

Do you know an adult, young person or community group that deserves recognition for their contribution to your community? Nominate them today using the Proud of Bucks Awards nomination form.
