True Sport Foundation is committed to ensuring that sport makes a positive contribution to Canadian society, to our athletes and to the physical and moral development of Canada’s youth.
How to Nominate
Eligible entries are for Junior Athlete of the Year, Leadership Awards (Athlete Leadership, Leadership in Sport and Volunteer Achievement), Corporate Excellence Award and the Spirit of Sport Story of the Year – accomplishments, stories or contributions that took place between January 1, 2012 and September 16, 2012 (except for lifetime achievement awards). Any person that meets the current Canadian Sport Awards eligibility criteria may be entered for consideration. Please review and comply with the 40th Canadian Sport Awards guidelines.
Nominations for four of the five Athlete Performance Awards (Male, Female, Team and Partners of the Year) will be populated by the TOP 8 results published by Sport Canada and from other relevant sources. The Selection Advisory Committee will determine, based on those results, the top 3-5 in each category. Those top 3-5 nominations are then sent to the jury for ranking 1-3. Therefore no nominations are required for these award categories (Male, Female, Team and Partners of the Year).
Nominations must be accompanied by all relevant information, a biography and colour photograph of the nominee, and a maximum of three relevant media articles per nomination.
