Sport Waikato is looking to acknowledge 2013 sporting excellence in the region.
District Sports Awards nominations are now open until Friday October 4.
Each Waikato district will have its own awards event with category winners going forward to be considered for the prestigious Brian Perry Waikato Regional Sports Awards, held in January, 2014.
Sport Waikato general manager Mike Maguire said the awards season comes at a very successful sporting period for the greater Waikato region.
‘‘We have lots to celebrate, recognising sporting talent in our region is very important,’’ said Mr Maguire.
‘‘Sport Waikato makes it as easy as possible to nominate online. From Referee/ Umpire of the Year to Team of the Year, our categories reflect the various roles in sport, I urge the community to nominate our local sports people.’’
Sport Waikato District Sports Awards events will take place in Matamata Piako, Taupo, South Waikato, Waikato, Waipa, Waitomo, Hauraki and Otorohanga, during the month of November.
