The Citizen of the Year Award from Middlesbrough Council invites you to nominate an individual who has gone the extra mile to make a difference for others.
We want to hear from you about an unsung hero who has improved the quality of life in the town.
The Citizen of the Year will be a resident of the town and suitable candidates might include a worker or volunteer who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in their dedication to helping others, teachers, social workers and other community stalwarts, whose tireless work or acts of kindness have made a real and lasting difference to the lives of those around them and the town as a whole.
People can be nominated for a one-off act of kindness or bravery, or it could be many hours of devotion to the benefit of the community.
Last year's winner was Tony Whitby of the Middlesbrough Amateur Boxing Club.
