Northern Territory Regional Sports Volunteer Awards
The 2021 NT Regional Sports Volunteer Awards aim to acknowledge volunteers who supported, led or remained committed to their sport during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Awards are open to volunteers right across the Territory – remote, regional and urban.
Recognising the initiatives implemented throughout the COVID-19 lock down and the efforts to get grass roots sports back up and running as the community transitioned to a new normal.
Nominations have been extended until Friday 21 May 2021.
Award ceremonies to recognise nominated volunteers will be held in:
- Katherine – 15 July 2021
- Darwin – 22 July 2021
- Nhulunbuy – 30 July 2021
- Alice Springs (postponed until further notice)
Due to the Chief Health Officer's direction for Alice Springs to enter a 72 hour lockdown, effective from 1 pm Wednesday 30 June, the Northern Territory Regional Sports Volunteer Awards for Central Australia planned for 1 July at the Marion Centre, have been postponed.
We would like to thank all our nominees and the Sport and Recreation sector for your enthusiasm in attending and support of the Central Australian Awards, and we will be scheduling a new date when it is a suitable time to proceed with community events.
We maintain that the health and safety of the community is priority during this time and we are committed to doing our part to help protect Central Australians during this period.
We look forward to recognising the Award recipients at a future date and their efforts in 2020 that were integral to the continuation of sport in Central Australia and the wellbeing of many Territorians during the pandemic.
