The nomination stage for the annual Perth and Kinross Sports Awards is now open and organisers at Live Active Leisure are inviting residents from across Perth and Kinross to put forward their choices for one of eleven prestigious sporting awards by 17th January 2020.
Now in its 30th year, the award ceremony will honour clubs, individuals, teams and events that play an active role in the sporting life of Perth and Kinross. Entries will be judged on merits from 1st January to 31st December 2019.
From school teams to local Olympians, individual coaches to large events, these awards recognise the huge wealth of local sporting talent and the many achievements of local sports people, businesses and clubs.
Bruce Renfrew, Partner at Thorntons Solicitors in Perth, who are this year's headline sponsors commented: “We are thrilled to be able to support the Perth and Kinross Sports Awards again this year.
