Young athletes can be nominated for Red Deer’s Rising Sports Star Award

Dedicated young Red Deer athletes can be nominated for a Rising Sport Star award.

Nominations are being sought by The City of Red Deer for the Rising Sport Stars awards program. Young people who live in the city and are achieving success in life through sports are eligible.

They must be aged 11 years or younger and participating in a Red Deer sport organization. They can be recognized for their commitment, passion, effort — or for overcoming adversity — to develop skills. The result is secondary.

After a two-year pause due to the pandemic, the City of Red Deer is happy to bring this award back to the community.

Nominations must be submitted by various sport groups by April 29. The awards will be presented at Xplore Sport Day on May 7 at Capstone’s Canada 150 Square.

For more information, or to submit a nomination, please visit www.reddeer.ca/XploreSport.
