A leadership award will be presented in conjunction with the Penticton 2016 B.C. Winter Games.

The award is in partnership with the B.C. Games Society and Promotion Plus.

It will be given to identify, recognize and celebrate those who have supported girls or women to participate more fully in physical activity or sport.

It is open to individuals, organizations and groups in the South Okanagan that have challenged traditional limits for women and girls in physical activity and sport for the past two years.

Nominations should focus on the candidate’s achievements from 2014 to 2016 and should include the candidate’s name and contact information, an overview of accomplishments, listing of awards, commendations or citations and a digital photograph of the nominee.

Submissions should be sent to operations@bcwintergames.ca by Feb 5 or can be dropped off at the Penticton 2016 BC Winter Games office, 90-246 Martin St., Penticton.
