The search is on for local sporting heroes and heroines as nominations are now open for the Hertfordshire Service to Sport Awards...
Held in November each year, the awards ceremony celebrates the vital contribution of volunteers in community sport and physical activity. The event represents an opportunity to nominate those individuals who go the extra mile, often behind the scenes, to keep grassroots sport and physical activity alive across the county. It could be a selfless volunteer who gives up their time to coach youngsters, who always shows up to drive the minibus, or someone you believe to be an unsung hero.
There are 13 categories that the public can nominate into including:
- Apprentice of the Year
- Male Community Coach of the Year
- Female Community Coach of the Year
- Disability Coach of the Year
- Contribution to Disability Sport
- Voluntary Community Project of the Year
- Professional Community Project of the Year
- Community Club of the Year
- University of Hertfordshire Active Campus Award
- Nadine Mehta Unsung Hero
- David Wray Service to Sport
- ‘This Girl Can in Herts’ Award
- Lifetime Achievement Award
The awards ceremony takes place at the University of Hertfordshire Weston Auditorium on Tuesday 19 November. Nominations are open to the public until Monday 30 September so get your nominations in quickly before time runs out! You can nominate online at www.sportinherts.org.
