New deadline for nominations 5pm Friday 19 June.

A great way to recognise the hard work and dedication of your club volunteers, and the successes that your club has had over the past year!
Nominations are now open. This year, a new category has been added to the awards, Club Volunteer of the Year, to recognise the hard work and dedication of the volunteers who work with clubs. This new category is open to any volunteers (and paid employees for work they undertake outside their paid job description) – they simply need to be nominated by their club.

Categories are:
- Club Volunteer of the Year
- Financial Management
- Operational Development
- Player Development
- Volunteer Development
- Event Management
- Marketing Management
- Facility Development

Nominations are open to any sports club in the Palmerston North, Manawatu, Tararua, and Horowhenua Districts. Please find attached the Nomination Forms and Awards Criteria which include further information. These forms can also be downloaded from the Sports Awards section of our website  

Nominations now close at 5pm on Friday 19 June, and the overall campaign will conclude with an award function held later this year.
