A nominee may not be particularly prominent in society. Previous nominees are also eligible to be nominated again.
Nomination forms are available at locations in Blairgowrie and Rattray, including the library and the VisitScotland Information Centre at the Wellmeadow. Forms should be returned to the library by 4pm on Monday November 12.
As previously reported in the Blairie, there will also be a Young Person of the Year Award for the first time this year, which aims to recognise the admirable contribution many young people make to public life in the town.
BRCC chairman Jim Bradley said earlier this year: “We thought it appropriate to reward the fine work done by many young people here in Blairgowrie and Rattray.
“Children are the future of this town and should be recognised when they contribute positively to their community.”
