Green Plaque Awards Scheme

 

Nominations Opening Soon

Earlier this year, you nominated and voted for the Leicestershire people and places you wanted to see honoured with a Green Plaque Award. The first six awards chosen by you were:
bellfoundry
james jack geoffrey rice
charles booth alice young graham chapman
Our picture gallery displays photos of the Green Plaque unveiling events so far.
Now we'd like your nominations for the next six Green Plaques to be installed across Leicestershire. Nominations will open on Wednesday 10th December for six weeks.
From that date, you will be able to make your nomination online, by picking up and dropping off a form at your local library or by writing to Green Plaques, Room 500, Leicestershire County Council, County Hall, Glenfield, LE3 8RA.
You can nominate war heroes, local heroes and famous people, philanthropists and entrepreneurs, places with cultural and heritage connections as well as buildings of historic or architectural importance.  
Anyone nominated for a Green Plaque must have been dead for at least 20 years.
The closing date for nominations will be Friday 23rd January 2015.
The Selection Criteria gives details of how we will evaluate nominations.
The online form will go live on Wednesday 10th December and you’ll get the chance to vote for the winning schemes when we publish the shortlist in February 2015.
