Sport Waikato is looking to acknowledge 2017 sporting excellence in the region.
Nominations for the Matamata Piako District Sports Awards are only open until Thursday September 28.
Category winners go forward to be considered for the Brian Perry Waikato Regional Sports Awards, to be held on Thursday February 1, 2018.
Sport Waikato’s local representative, Lou Beer said the awards season is the opportunity for the district to demonstrate how proud they are to have such great clubs and individuals as part of the community.
‘‘We have lots to celebrate and recog- nising sporting talent and those who support sport in our towns is very important,’’ said Beer.
‘‘We encourage each club, school and sports organisation to take the time to fill in a nomination form at their earliest opportunity. If you do not have all the information, submit a nomination anyway and use the comments to let us know further information should be sought.’’
Sport Waikato makes it as easy as possible to nominate online and categories reflect the various roles in sport.
The Matamata Piako District Sports Awards event will take place on Thursday November 9 2017.
Nominations can be made online at www.sportwaikato.org.nz.
