First Minister Carwyn Jones has announced plans for an awards scheme to recognise 'ordinary people who do extraordinary things' in Wales.
The St David Awards are due to be launched next year and will work via a nominations system.
The First Minister said: “I have often felt humbled by the extraordinary stories of individuals who work tirelessly, without publicity or self-interest, for the benefit of others and who genuinely make Wales a better place.
“Work is currently being carried out by my officials to identify the appropriate sectors for recognition and the deliberation process for making the awards."
Mr Jones said he would like to see 'a strong business component' in the awards, with the private sector properly recognised.
He added that he was also keen to see an accolade for those who help raise Wales' profile internationally.
