The best of the best will soon be recognised for their sports achievements in the 2020 Orange Sports Awards.
The Awards are designed to acknowledge teams, clubs and individuals who showed dedication, sportsmanship and worked hard in their sporting code during 2019.
Orange City Mayor Cr Reg Kidd is asking members of the community to think about who they consider to be worthy winners.
“Nominations aren’t limited to those who shine bright on the field, but also those who work hard behind the scenes to get things done. From the volunteer coaches that go the extra mile, to the administrative team who make sure players registrations are submitted, it’s a team effort and that effort shouldn’t go unrecognised,” Cr Kidd.
Orange City Council’s Sport and Recreation Policy Committee Chair Cr Jason Hamling said it is fantastic to see so many sportsmen and women of all ages nominated every year.
“There are always hundreds of sporting stars that deserve recognition every year, but these awards are about who really stands out from the crowd. A huge percentage of the Orange community is involved in some code of sport in one way or another so it’s important that we acknowledge them and their efforts,” Cr Hamling.
Sports Award nominations close on Friday 27 March 2020. The Orange Sports Awards presentation night will be held on Wednesday 15 July 2020.
