The Virtual Sports and Health Awards 2021
What is happening this year?
The team have made the decision that this year our awards will remain online, so join us now in nominating and celebrating your outstanding athletes, teams, groups, clubs and schools!
We know that many of our residents, sports clubs, schools, local organisations and groups, have shown great resilience and determination to keep active, or provide services so that other people can, during the challenging times we continue to face. So, we want to recognise your work and say thank you to those who are keeping active and helping others to stay happy and well.
How will the awards run this year?
The awards will run in a similar way to the Activity Heroes in 2020, however this year we also want to celebrate with you and have a virtual awards ceremony.
Once you nominate someone in one of the 7 categories your nomination will be reviewed by the team. Once reviewed our team will do a post on our Facebook page with an online certificate recognising and celebrating your nomination. Once the nominations close in October 2021 the panel will review all of the nominees and agree on our finalists and winners. Then on Thursday 2nd December, our finalists and winners will be announced! After this our team will send a certificate in the post to the top three nominees in each category plus a rosette to the winner.
