Unsung Hero 2019: Send your stories of amazing volunteers in community sport


Unsung Hero 2019 is open until midnight on Sunday October 20th 2019!

Previous winners have gone on to roles with government on projects related to improved mental health and anti-gang crime, secure commercial partnerships with major sports brands, and even be a guest of honour at Stevie Wonder's birthday party, as a result of the profile the award brings.

All of this in addition to enjoying the red carpet experience at Sports Personality of the Year.

Last December, Kirsty Ewen became BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero for 2018, receiving the trophy from Olympic great, Jess Ennis-Hill.

All over the UK sport brings communities together, and we want you to tell us about your community's unsung hero.

You can send us their story by video or write to us via the nomination form. If you need some inspiration, check out the example video and text entry.

You can also send us your nomination via email. Just download this form and send it to unsunghero@bbc.co.uk.

When can I nominate someone?

Send us nominations for this year's award before midnight 20 October.

How is the award decided?

Your nominations are entered into a local award for your BBC nation or region. After a panel discussion, the local winners are announced in each of the 15 regions.

The 15 winners go to a national panel, of current and former sports stars and people active in sports volunteering. They reach their decision, with the winner being announced live at the Sports Personality of the Year Awards on 15 December.
