CHARLOTTETOWN -- As another sporting year begins to draw to a close, Sport P.E.I. is once again inviting nominations for its annual awards.
Nominations may be made by any member of the public, as well as provincial sport associations, in any of 11 categories.
Deadline for submissions is Friday, Jan. 15, 2010.
To be eligible for consideration for an award, candidates must be considered to be from Prince Edward Island, or have established residency in the province. Athletes must be considered to be amateur in status.
Those nominated in the junior categories must have been 18 years of age or younger as of Jan. 1, 2010, or have competed in junior competition throughout 2009.
Individuals or organizations making nominations are reminded that the athlete and team awards are for the calendar year 2009, and therefore selections will be based only on achievements from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 of the past year. Longevity and commitment over a number of years may be considered in declaring finalists for the administrator, coach and official award.
Forms are available by calling Sport P.E.I. at 368-4110, or downloading them from www.sportpei.pe.ca.
The awards will be presented in April.
