BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero Award

The BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero award is expanding its search to recognise those who devote their free time to help people in grass-roots activity and sports. Now in its 15th year, the age-range limits have changed so you can now nominate volunteers aged from 16 upwards.

The BBC wants to find the most inspiring volunteers from across the UK. The regional and national BBC stations will be gathering nominations. From the nominations, and with the help of a locally sourced panel, a shortlist is considered and a regional winner is announced.

Fifteen winners – one from each region – go forward into the national award, where a panel of sports people, with a little help from some BBC folk, look closely at each Unsung Hero. After a fierce day’s debate they will agree on the 2017 BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero.

Nominations are open so do something little for someone who does something big. Nominate your inspiring volunteer before the deadline, 23:59 BST on Sunday, 22 October 2017.
