The Good Citizen Award honours people who may not get the recognition they deserve for their efforts to help or improve the community.

People can be nominated for a wide range of services to their city and communities. It could be someone who has made Coventry a better place, or who has improved the life of the city through their selfless efforts, or a tireless charity worker who always puts others first. Examples include:

  • Community involvement - how have they affected their community?
  • Going the 'extra mile'
  • Long service
  • Actions that have affected/involve others to improve quality of life?
  • An outstanding achievement - act of bravery/heroics

  • Outstanding achievement in their field, such as sports or culture
