Inspirational artists, sports stars, coaches, volunteers and teams are being sought for recognition in this year’s Knowsley Sports and Culture Awards.
These prestigious awards are a celebration of the rich culture and sporting talent that exists in Knowsley, as well as those hard-working volunteers who give up their time to give others opportunities.
So, if you know someone who deserve recognition for their achievements in sport or culture, or who has inspired others to do so, make sure you nominate them for a prize.
We are looking for the most deserving, talented and committed individuals or groups who have made a real contribution to sports or culture in Knowsley.
With categories including Club of the Year, Artist of the Year and Cultural Volunteer of the Year, this is a chance to give some recognition where it is due.
The awards take place on Friday, October 13 at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park, and nominations must be submitted by Friday, 15 September.
Knowsley’s Sports and Culture Awards recognise people who live or work in the borough who are committed to sports or culture, and who make a real difference to local communities. It could be an up and coming athlete competing at school level, an artist with exceptional talent, or somebody who gives up their time to help others develop their skills – by coaching or running a community group, for instance.
Last year’s award winners included volunteers, coaches, junior achievers, school sports teams, sports clubs and people who’ve fought back from illness.
So if you think you know somebody worthy of recognition, visit the council’s website to download a nomination form.
