Community Sport Hero Awards are coming to Richmond on March 14

Sport BC is bringing the Community Sport Hero Awards to the City of Richmond on March 14.

The awards will honour long-standing community volunteers who have made significant contributions to sport.

Nominations are now being accepted through until Friday, February 15, 2013.

“Volunteers fuel the development and sustainability of community sport within British Columbia,” said Rob Newman, President & CEO of Sport BC.

“These awards are an important and meaningful opportunity to acknowledge individuals who have made significant and continued contributions to sport within their community.  Sport BC is honoured to partner with Teck in highlighting these deserving volunteers.”

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

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

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

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

This ceremony marks the first of eight stops in 2013 for the traveling awards show, presented by Teck. It will be the first visit to Richmond for Sport BC’s Community Sport Hero Awards since the program began in 2001.
