Schools, community groups, businesses and individuals across the Caerphilly county borough are being encouraged to show they have pride in their place by entering an exciting new competition.
The Pride In Your Place awards 2012 is organised by Caerphilly County Borough Council to acknowledge the endeavour, innovation and commitment of those who help make our area cleaner, safer and greener and a better place to live, work and visit.
The competition was organised for the first time last year and the inaugural awards ceremony took place at Penallta House council offices in Ystrad Mynach last November. Ysgol Y Lawnt Primary School in Rhymney scooped the top prize and it is hoped that even more quality entries will be received this year.
The council recognises that thousands of people do their bit to improve the quality of the environment across the whole of the Caerphilly county borough.
Category winners will receive a cash prize of £500 and will be eligible for the prestigious overall winner award.
A full list of categories can be found at www.caerphilly.gov.uk/prideinyourplace
The awards scheme is open to all residents, schools, businesses & community groups within the area. All applications will be assessed by an independent panel. Those short listed candidates will be invited to an award evening on the 23rd November, 2012.
Closing date for applications is Friday October 5th 2012. SEDA, a major international packaging company with a base near Blackwood, has agreed to be a key sponsor for this year's 'Pride in Your Place' awards.
