ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS 2011

SponSorShip propoSal

ow in its 10th year, The Argus Achievement Awards were launched to recognise outstanding achievements of men, women and children across Sussex.
The awards champion all those who deserve recognition for their selfless, brave or generous actions during the past year and provide an opportunity to honour the men, women and children who have touched all of our lives. Scores of unsung heroes are nominated every year by families and friends who want to celebrate

achievements made without thought of personal reward or public recognition. The Argus has extensive coverage of the awards, running over four months where readers are invited to nominate people/groups/businesses within each set category. A panel of judges will include: The Argus Editor Michael Beard, sponsors from each category & key individuals from across the county. Nominees will be invited to a glitzy awards ceremony at The Theatre Royal Brighton where there will be tears, laughter and applaud from the room as stories of the years heroes unfold.
