The Switch On Star winner will be invited on stage to speak to the event’s presenters in front of a huge home crowd, before helping to light up their city.
Nominations are open for Prestonians who have done some amazing things during 2023. We want to celebrate someone who’s a great community champion, and flies the flag for Preston.
Last year’s competition was won by Georgette Jones, who was nominated for her ‘selfless and inspirational’ dedication to the homeless community.
