STARs 2018

STARS Awards 2018 – Short-leet announced

The review panel for the STARS Awards 2018 has now considered all of the nominations received this year and agreed the short-leet for each of the five Award categories.

The standard and volume of submissions this year was exceptional and it was a tough task to agree these finalists.  They are all being invited to attend the Awards Ceremony, with those who nominated them, in the near future once date is confirmed when the overall winners in each category will be announced.

Team Award (Internally nominated)

There were a number of nominations for different teams in relation to the Council emergency response to the extreme weather event in late February/early March.  Given the scale of the emergency response, rather than pit one team against another through a short-leet, an approach is being developed for this year to recognise all teams involved in the emergency response to that unprecedented weather. 

More detail on this recognition will be shared at the Awards ceremony and representatives from across the teams involved will be co-ordinated through Strategic Leads to attend the celebration.

Team Award (Externally nominated)

Millersneuk Primary School Team
Kilmardinny Recycling Crew

Congratulations to all of our finalists, who we look forward to meeting at the Awards Ceremony.

We will also be writing to all those who were nominated but did not make the shortlist to let them know their efforts have been recognised through a nomination.
