Nom­i­na­tions sought for re­cre­ation awards

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

Nom­i­na­tions are be­ing ac­cepted and so­licited in the pro­vin­cial re­cre­ation field by Re­cre­ation New­found­land and Labrador. In­di­vid­u­als and groups are in­vited to rec­og­nize con­tri­bu­tions and achieve­ments that im­prove the qual­ity of life through re­cre­ation within the prov­ince.

Dawn Sharpe of Por­tu­gal CoveSt. Phillips, who chairs the Recrea t i o n New­foundl an d a n d Labrador awards com­mit­tee, em­pha­sized that “all those with knowl­edge of con­tri­bu­tions to re­cre­ation, at all lev­els, should sub­mit nom­i­na­tions so that proper recog­ni­tion can be made.

“Within our prov­ince’s re­cre­ation field, it is very im­por­tant to make cer­tain that those who de­serve this recog­ni­tion re­ceive it. There are many peo­ple who de­serve to be nom­i­nated.”

The Cy Hoskins Me­mo­rial Award of Merit, the Pitcher Plant Group and In­di­vid­ual Awards and the Bridging The Gap Award are recog­ni­tion awards that are pre­sented an­nu­ally.

“These awards were put into place to rec­og­nize and honor groups and in­di­vid­u­als who are con­tribut­ing to the im­por­tant field of re­cre­ation. It is only cor­rect that those who de­serve recog­ni­tion are nom­i­nated,” Sharpe stated.

“For 27 years some ex­cep­tional in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions have been rec­og­nized by these awards. De­serv­ing nom­i­na­tions add to the over­all pres­tige that the awards have earned.”

The dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is Feb. 29.

The fol­low­ing is a sum­mary of the awards:

• Cy Hoskins Award — goes to a full-time re­cre­ation prac­ti­tioner;

• Pitcher Plant Group Award — goes to a com­mu­nity, a re­cre­ation com­mis­sion or a ser­vice group;

• Pitcher Plant In­di­vid­ual Award — goes to a vol­un­teer within the re­cre­ation field;

• Bridging The Gap Award — goes to vol­un­teers who have made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the de­vel­op­ment of re­cre­ation for per­sons with a dis­abil­ity.
