'Sports Personality of the Year' Nominations
"Do you know a member of the Club who you would like to nominate for this award?"
The award is intended to recognise a member of the Sports & Social Club, police or support staff who has achieved a particular outstanding sporting performance or performances when playing for Club. This may be during the previous 12 months or over a number of years. It also includes anyone who has given a high degree of dedication, time and commitment to sport in the Constabulary either recently or over a number of years. It could also include someone who has done considerable charity fund-raising through sport activity under the Constabulary banner.

It must be stressed that this is a Club award and it is intended to recognise achievements in primarily sport activities performed under the Constabulary banner. Also, nominees must be a members or honorary member of the Club.
Activities engaged outside police club circles may also be added to support the overall nomination.
To assist with your nomination, the report should include all or some of the following information:
A summary of activity and achievements listed in chronological order up to present day.
These should primarily be police sports events followed by non-police sport events.
Detail of any prestigious sporting achievements - the high-point of the persons/team sporting career.
Any noteworthy sports stories or significant events.
How the member or team has supported the Club in an organisational or supportive manner over the years.
Details of any charity fund-raising done through sport activities.

Details of other club members who support the nomination and their views.
It may be appropriate to actually contact the person you are nominating to expand on more information in support of your report.
Finally, it is acceptable in certain circumstances for an individual to nominate his or herself.

'Sports Team of the Year' Award

"Do you know a Club Team that you would like to nominate for this award?"
This year we are introducing this new award. It is sometimes difficult to nominate one individual for the 'Sports Person' award as often 'the team' have all excelled in their performance in the past year and all worthy of recognision.
If you would like to nominate your team or a team who you are aware have excelled in their performances during the past 12 months then please put them forward. The team name is only required at this stage. If they are successful then we would then ask for a full list of the team members nominated.
The criteria is very much similar to the above Sports Personality.

What Next?
Your nomination should be forwarded to the County Club secretary, Vol. 20785 Steven Broadbent and may be sent by e-mail, as a Word document or on a typed / hand written G43.

The report should be received no later than 7 March 2019. An announcement will be made at the club AGM to be held later in the month and the award will be formally presented by the Chief Constable in May.
