With just a week to go until nominations close for Volunteer of the Year, Hub, Club or School of the Year and Governing Body of the Year, now is the time to nominate your Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards 2018 winners and make sure your choice gets the recognition they deserve.
The Scottish public has come out in force and there has been a flood of nominations for outstanding performances by Scottish athletes, clubs and teams in what has already been a truly great year for Scottish sport.
But sport is not just about the medal moments and top stars. There are thousands of groups and volunteers across the country putting in countless hours to give people their first experience of sport, nurture future stars and provide vital services in the community. We want to recognise these behind the scenes heroes and time is running out with just a week to go until these categories close.
Make sure you let us know your choice by 23:59 on Tuesday 31 July and help us find the volunteers and organisations that are making a real difference in their community!
This is your chance to ensure the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes are recognised and have their moment in the limelight. Are you inspired by a dedicated volunteer or proud of a sports group in your community? Does your local school go above and beyond for its pupils? Nominate someone today and tell us why they should be rewarded for their success, dedication or impact on Scottish sport.
Once nominations close, those in the running will be passed to our expert judging panel and up to three finalists in each category will be short-listed and invited as guests of Team Scotland to the Awards – a star-studded celebration of Scottish sport on Thursday 13 September 2018.
The Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards welcome some of the biggest names in Scottish Sport and business for a special evening of sporting celebrations. Guests will be expertly guided through the night by multi-award winning television presenter Hazel Irvine, whilst enjoying a drinks reception, dinner and entertainment. The event also gives back to the next generation with a major aim of the evening raising funds for the Scottish Commonwealth Games Youth Trust who support Scotland’s starts of the future.
Nominations for Male Athlete, Female Athlete, Para-Sport Athlete, Young Athlete, Coach and Team of the Year will close on 27 August.
