Sports award nominations
Sport Waikato is once again looking to acknowledge sporting excellence across the region.
2015 District Sports Awards nominations can be made from now until Friday, October 2.
Matamata-Piako District Awards will take place on November 11 and the organisation hopes to have some category winners going forward to the prestigious Brian Perry Waikato Regional Sports Awards, held in January 2016.
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.’’
Matamata- Piako district co- ordinator Lou Beer asks that each club, school and sports organisation takes the time to fill in a nomination form so that the many achievements of Matamata and surrounding clubs can be highlighted.
‘‘So put your pride on paper and nominate our local sports people.’’ Nominations can be made online at www. sportwaikato.org.nz.
