Now in their third year, the C’llr Achievement Awards are here to recognise the fantastic work that councillors do to serve their communities and highlight areas of best practice and innovation.
We have some exciting new developments this year, including three new categories. There are 11 awards in total, which we will feature in the coming weeks on the LGiU Blog. They are:
- Age UK Pride of Place Award – New for 2012
- Bruce-Lockhart Member Scholarship – New for 2012
- CCLA Award for Outstanding Contribution to Financial Performance
- Community Champion of the Year
- Judges Special Award for Contribution to Local Government – New for 2012
- Leader of the Year
- Online Councillor of the Year
- Partnership Achievement of the Year
- Scrutineer of the Year
- Sustainability Champion of the Year
- Young Councillor of the Year
The Bruce-Lockhart Member Scholarship is a particularly special award that comes with a £10,000 bursary for the winning councillor. This award, supported by Kent, Essex and East Sussex Councils, is in recognition of the outstanding contribution to Local Government of Lord Sandy Bruce-Lockhart, the former Chairman of the Local Government Association and Leader of Kent County Council.
The ‘Bruce-Lockhart Member Scholarship’ will recognise and reward leadership potential in local government and be awarded to elected members who demonstrate the potential to develop into leadership positions in the future.
