HEROES, courageous children and outstanding fundraisers. We’ve got them all in this year’s Pride of Hartlepool competition.

But we’d love more people to nominate their favourites in other areas as well.

So let’s get moving and put forward our top students, our hero policemen and women, our fearless fire crews and 
our excellent ambulance crews.

We’re sure there are some fantastic and deserving people who would deserve to win the green champion category, the performer of the year 
section or the student of the year.

And let’s have some more entries for the community group category. Here is a rundown on each and who qualifies to be in the running for honours:

l Sporting Achievement – This award recognises individuals who have proved outstanding achievement in a specific sporting field.

l Community Group – We are looking for a group of people, whether they are paid or volunteers, who have made a real difference in the community.
