A total of 17 people have been nominated for the glittering final, held in the Culloden Hotel in Co Down.
"It will be an emotional night as we listen to their inspirational and uplifting accounts," Sunday life Editor Martin Breen, who has been involved in organising the event from day one, told UTV.
"The real stars here tonight are those who have been nominated for a place in the final."
I think the youngest person we have nominated is an eight-year-old and right up to people in their 70s - their stories represent all that is good about Northern Ireland.
They will be joined by a host of familiar faces though, with the entertainment including X Factor star Amelia Lily.
"We have some of the stars of UTV, of course - Frank Mitchell and Pamela Ballantine," Mr Breen added.
"We have stars from Coronation Street, like Charlie Lawson who people would know as Jim Mc Donald.
"We've got the Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill, Miss Northern Ireland, Zoe Salmon, countless other local faces - some of whom who have come from nearby and others who have flown in from abroad."
Those in line for awards are described as "ordinary people who have done extraordinary things" and come from right across the community in Northern Ireland.
They're set to be rewarded for their remarkable compassion, neighbourliness, charity, enterprise and courage.
A special programme, The Spirit of Northern Ireland Awards, will be screened on UTV at 6.05pm on Sunday 24 June.
