OUR HEROES '08; It's the most exciting night of the year, when Scotland's true stars are recognised for their courage and inspiration.

IT'S set to be the most exciting night of the year, when Scotland's true heroes get the recognition they deserve.

Look out next week in the Daily Record for the launch of the 2008 Our Heroes awards.

We'll be inviting you to nominate the extraordinary people in your community who make a difference to other people's lives for the fifth annual awards dinner in May.

Just take a look at some of the inspiring people who won an award last year.

Brave Jason Crombie became a daytime TV star after winning the Our Little Hero award.

The 10-year-old Stirlingshire schoolboy spoke on the Jeremy Kyle show about a facial deformity and how it has made him feel different.

Jason, a pupil at Plean Primary, loves school and told surgeons that he would only agree to his facial surgery if the operation was carried out during the school holidays.

Today, although Jason needs more operations to reconstruct his face, he claims his time as a Record Our Hero was a real confidence boost.

We'll also be looking for people who go out of their way every day to help others and build a better Scotland.

That means people who always put their neighbours before themselves and doctors, nurses or even lollipop ladies whose actions are above and beyond the call of duty.

It could be a cheery bus driver whose bright smile touches lives on a daily basis or a caring postman whose job is not simply over after he delivers those letters.

We also want to know about Scots who have shown unusual courage or bravery.

Maybe they have saved somebody's life, battled illness or worked tirelessly to keep a business afloat.

They might be in the armed forces or part of the emergency services.

A hero need not be a pillar of society or a model of virtue, all they need is a heart of gold. They don't need to have achieved the impossible, all they need is the spirit of a hero.

So get thinking now to guarantee that the special people in your life get the appreciation they deserve.
