THE Queen's Awards Office is to introduce Enterprise Champions awards.
The awards will honour people who not only show astute enterprise but also those who help others through mentoring and networking.
There will be 10 annual Enterprise Champion awards.
In addition, people who have made outstanding contributions over a period will receive lifetime awards.
The Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Dr Ingrid Roscoe, said: "I am sure West Yorkshire will provide individuals who will merit the honour of the new awards."
Nomination forms are available on the Queen's Awards website at www.queensawards.org.uk or from The Queen's Awards Office on 0207 222 2277.
