The Suffolk Medal
The Suffolk Medal has been created as the highest award that can be made by Suffolk to an individual from Suffolk.
The purpose of The Suffolk Medal is to recognise, reward and champion the exceptional contributions of Suffolk people that have made a fundamental and lasting difference to the county.
Those eligible for consideration must have gone above and beyond expectations in making a significant individual contribution to their community and will have made a similar impact on the County.
The Suffolk Medal was designed by internationally renowned artist Maggi Hambling.
A Panel, which includes the Lord Lieutenant, has been established to create a shortlist. For more information and details about how to nominate someone for the Suffolk Medal please visit www.thesuffolkmedal.org.uk
