Sport hero nominations close this Friday

Nominate your Sport Hero for Sport BC, sponsored by Teck.

Sport BC is bringing the Community Sport Hero Awards, presented by Teck, to Ashcroft on Sept. 10. The awards will honour long-standing community volunteers who have made significant contributions to sport. Nominations are now being accepted through sportbc.com until Friday, Aug. 8.

“Community sport within British Columbia would not be possible without the dedication of volunteers,” said Sport BC’s President & CEO, Rob Newman. “These awards are a unique and meaningful opportunity to acknowledge individuals who continue to dedicate their time and efforts to sport in our communities.”

To be eligible, nominees for the Community Sport Hero Awards must meet the following criteria:

Be an individual from the local community who makes a voluntary contribution to sport through coaching, officiating, boards, administration, special events, etc;

Be an individual (not an organization or foundation); and

Has been, or continues to be, a dedicated sport volunteer for a minimum of eight years.

This ceremony marks the second stop of 2014 for the traveling awards show, presented this year by Teck.

The Community Sport Hero Awards presented by Teck honours outstanding sport volunteers in communities across British Columbia. The awards recognize coaches, officials, mentors and administrators who have dedicated themselves to grow and develop amateur sport at the community level.
