The competition is now closed.

Lots of you voted for your favourite entries and we're delighted to announce the winner for each category.


Congratulations to Laura Tonks who wins an overnight stay for two with breakfast and dinner in a deluxe room at the four star Casa Hotel in Chesterfield. Here’s her 'proud' moment:

12 to 18-year-oldsJames Vardy

James Vardy was the only entry in the 12 to 18-year-olds category and he wins a £50 shopping voucher. Here's his 'proud' moment:

"I would like to say I am very proud of my Great Nanna, Stella Vardy, who will be 97 on 24th April 2016. Born and bred in Derbyshire, she still lives on her own and is very independent. I love listening to her stories of when she was young and the big differences in when she was my age at school. She would love a treat like this."

Eight to 11-year-oldsLewie Johnson

Congratulations to Lewie Johnson who wins a £30 shopping voucher. Here's his 'proud' moment:

"I am most proud of all the brilliant parks and all the green spaces in Chesterfield where I can go and play, ride my bike and meet up with my family and friends. Some of my favourite places are Queen's Park, the brook at the bottom of Brooklyn Drive and Edinborough Park."
