Awarding local talent

Nominations are now open for the 2012 Yass Valley Sports Awards and Sporting Hall of Fame.

Five trophies will again be up for grabs for the Sports Awards, with the winners to be announced at the annual gala dinner to be held at the Golf Club on April 27. The five categories are Sportsperson of the Year (Open, Local and Junior), Clubperson of the Year and Team of the Year.

There is sure to be strong competition in all the categories, with a number of local residents having made a mark in their chosen sports during 2012.

In a major change to the nomination process, individuals may put forward nominations as well as local sporting clubs. This will hopefully widen the field and include sports that have not been included in the past.

Nominations for the Sporting Hall of Fame are also being sought in the Hall of Fame and Local Legend categories, with early indications that there will be at least two more added to the illustrious line-up already inducted.

Nomination forms have been forwarded to all local sporting organisations, with additional copies available from Yass Valley Council’s website or by contacting Ross Luff at council during business hours.

Nominations for the Sports Awards and Hall of Fame close on March 1.
