The selection committee for the Kemptville and District Sports Hall of Fame is eager to hear from the community as to who should be considered for this prestigious recognition. Nominations must be submitted no later than May 15, 2021.
“The Sports Hall of Fame Committee recognizes and appreciates the support of the local business community in years past, and we are working within our existing resources to avoid further strain on sponsors during the COVID-19 pandemic,” stated Committee Chair Heather Burns. “We will ensure this year’s inductees are honoured at the same caliber of event, through a virtual ceremony in September, and will continue to offer our important bursary program to young athletes.”
The bursary program exists to help continue the tradition of quality sport in our community. Deserving young athletes, their teams and their organizations can apply for a range of assistance, from individual registration fees to funds for high level competition for an individual or team. These opportunities are limited and distributed on a quarterly basis.
Nomination forms and bursary applications are available online at www.kemptvillesportshalloffame.ca.
The Kemptville & District Sports Hall of Fame was established in 2010 to recognize and honour local athletes and teams who have achieved outstanding success, and those who have made a significant contribution to the advancement of competitive sport. The organization is dedicated to fostering a sense of pride in sport accomplishments, supporting current athletes in working toward their goals, and preserving local sport heritage.
Volunteer committee members are needed to continue highlighting the importance of sport legacy in the community. Interested persons are asked to contact Kemptville & District Sports Hall of Fame Committee at [email protected].
