All nominations will be treated in the strictest confidence and nominees should not be informed that they have been nominated as it can be very disappointing to raise expectations that are not then met.
The Nomination Process
The deadline for nominations is 14 February 2024. Successful nominees will be contacted by 28 February 2024 and the High Sheriff Awards will be conferred at a ceremony on a date to be confirmed, to which nominators, families and friends will also be invited.
To make a nomination, please download the Awards Nomination Form that has been prepared for this purpose, and return the completed form to the High Sheriff preferably by e-mail to Shropshire@highsheriffs.com.
