Sport B.C. is bringing the Community Sport Hero Awards, presented by Encana, to Summerland next month.

On Sept, 28, the awards will honour long-standing community volunteers who have made significant contributions to sports. Nominations are now being accepted through sportbc.com until Friday, Sept. 2

“Volunteers are what fuel the development and sustainability of community sport within British Columbia,” said Sport BC’s President and CEO Tim Gayda. “These awards are a rare and meaningful opportunity to acknowledge individuals who have made a significant and continued contribution to sport within their community.”

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

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

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

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

The ceremony marks the first time Sport BC’s Community Sport Hero Awards have visited Summerland. It will be the 11th stop for the awards in 2011.
