Watch: Kirsty Ewen wins Get Inspired Unsung Hero award

Last December, Kirsty Ewen took to the stage at Sports Personality of the Year and became BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero for 2018, receiving the trophy from Olympic great, Jess Ennis-Hill.

This year we've joined with Made By Sport to recognise the power of sport to change lives and build better futures. We're celebrating the people and projects that are really making an impact, and need your help to find them.

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 between September 17 and October 20.

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 then 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 on television at the Sports Personality of the Year Awards on December 15.
