What are the audentior awards?
The Audentior Awards are held annually by the Mayor and the Chairman of Watford Borough Council and is an opportunity for the council to recognise and celebrate outstanding dedication shown by organisations and individuals in the town.
Individuals who have gone that extra mile to help friends, family or people around them, an everyday hero who does amazing things.
The one attribute that all nominees share is the quality of being extraordinary in their commitment, dedication, energy and effort in their particular field.
The categories for the awards might change slightly from year to year.
