AWARDS TO BE HELD:
Date to be confirmed.

The Central Energy Trust Manawatū Sport Awards is the regions premier event for recognising the highest achieving sporting athletes, teams, coaches and administrators for the 2018 calendar year.

NOMINATION Process:
All nominations must be directed through regional sport organisations and/or clubs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sport Manawatū.

Eligibility:

  • Only sporting achievements within the nomination period
    1st January – 31 December 2018 are eligible to be considered.
  • Nominees may be amateur or a professional.
  • Sporting achievements in New Zealand and overseas are eligible.
  • Must be a New Zealand Citizen, or hold a Resident or Permanent Resident Visa.
  • Nominees under consideration for awards must meet at least one of the criteria below:
  • Be a member of a club or organisation for their nominated sport in the Manawatū during the award period.
  • Have represented Manawatū in their chosen discipline during the award period.
  • Be commonly acknowledged as a Manawatū sportsperson.
  • Be commonly acknowledged as a Manawatu sportsperson. The intent of this, is to ensure we still are able to include those sportspeople that are widely regarded as a Manawatu sportsperson but because of the demands of their sport cannot meet either of the other two criteria. This is not intended to catch any and all sportspeople who have passed through the Manawatu but those that developed here through school and/or club sport, have a community connection, and still would recognise themselves as someone from the Manawatu. We would be happy to hold discussions with each sport to help them work through this if required.

Guidelines for submitting nominations:

  • Please ensure the information presented on the nomination form is as clear as possible as it is used by the judges to make an informed decision.
  • Please ensure you include all relevant detail about each performance under the correct headings, listing their highest achievements first in each section.
  • Athletes may be nominated in multiple awards, please ensure you use a separate nomination form for each award the athlete is nominated for.
