Nominations can be made at the Birmingham 2022 website by submitting 100 words or less on how the nominee is making a difference in your community and why they deserve to be a Batonbearer, all nominations must be aged 12 or over as of 2 June 2022.
The Baton is currently on an epic journey across the Commonwealth, visiting Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Caribbean and the Americas. The final part of the journey travels the length and breadth of England for 25 days before the Relay officially ends at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games on 28 July 2022.
