Knowsley’s Sports and Culture Awards take place this year which is the one night of the year where people in Knowsley who have made an impact on others’ lives are recognised and celebrated.
Do you have someone in mind who you think deserves to be recognised for their achievements or for being inspirational? As long as they live or work in Knowsley, you can nominate them in any of these categories to let them know they have made a difference to you, to others or to themselves.
Adult Active Achiever of the Year (Age 19+)
Nominate your Knowsley star in this category if they’re over 19 and you’re impressed with how they have improved their health and wellbeing by making lifestyle changes.
Junior Active Achiever of the Year (Age five to 19)
This award is for someone aged five to 19 who has recognised the importance of keeping fit, and has increased their psychical activity levels to improve their health and wellbeing.
Community Cultural Activity of the Year
The Community Cultural Activity of the Year award recognises community groups (formal and informal) that have had success in using culture in their programmes of activity. Whether the groups have been involved with community cultural events or just cultural activities, we’d like to hear all about it.
