It’s the time of year when or­ga­niz­ers of the an­nual Yar­mouth County ath­letic awards cer­e­mony are plan­ning their event and again they are seek­ing the pub­lic’s help.

If there are any in­di­vid­ual ath­letes or teams that have won at provin­cials – or per­haps at a higher level – in the past year, or­ga­niz­ers of the ath­letic awards cer­e­mony want to know about them.

They in­vite peo­ple to con­tact them ei­ther at Yar­mouth Recre­ation or at the Ar­gyle Recre­ation Depart­ment.

They also are ac­cept­ing nom­i­na­tions for spe­cial awards. There are six cat­e­gories of spe­cial awards (male and fe­male).

The Yar­mouth County ath­letic awards for 2018 will be pre­sented Fri­day, Nov. 30, at École sec­ondaire de Par-en-Bas in Tus­ket.

The cer­e­mony is a fall tra­di­tion for the lo­cal area, an event that – for more than four decades – has rec­og­nized ath­letes and teams for their ac­com­plish­ments.

Since it was first held in the 1970s, the cer­e­mony has taken place in var­i­ous lo­ca­tions, but in re­cent years the venue has been the Par-en-Bas school.

Each year a wide range of sports is rep­re­sented, in­clud­ing in­door and out­door ones, team sports and in­di­vid­ual ones.

Among the evening’s high­lights is the pre­sen­ta­tion of spe­cial awards. The fol­low­ing are the spe­cial award cat­e­gories:

• male and fe­male ath­lete of the year

• male and fe­male youth ath­lete of the year

• male and fe­male coach of the year

• male and fe­male of­fi­cial of the year

• male and fe­male fair play award

• male and fe­male vol­un­teer of the year

To rec­om­mend an in­di­vid­ual or team for recog­ni­tion for their achieve­ments of the past year – or to nom­i­nate some­one for one of a spe­cial award – or if you are look­ing for more in­for­ma­tion, the fol­low­ing are the con­tacts:
