Sports Ambassador Call for Applications & Nominations

2020 Sports Ambassador Nomination is Open (2)


The deadline for either an applicant or a nomination submission is October 21, 2022, at 4:30 p.m.
The City of Nelson is pleased to announce that it will continue the Sports Ambassador program that was first commenced in 2020 and designate a Sports Ambassador to represent the City in 2023. 
Applications and nominations for the Sports Ambassador for the 2023 calendar year are currently being accepted, and the forms are available at:
Nelson is an active community with a long and rich history of sports and recreation. The Sports Ambassador program seeks to further advance this tradition by increasing the visibility of the City’s most accomplished athletes and others that have contributed to the City’s reputation as a sports and recreation hub. The Sports Ambassador will be selected by Council and announced at the City’s Annual Reception.  The Sports Ambassador will be awarded a $1,000 honorarium.   
The designation will be awarded to an individual athlete, group or team or other individual who has achieved a high standard of excellence in their athletic pursuits or accomplishments and who will be worthy representatives of Nelson’s sports and recreational community.  Nelson-based individuals, groups, and teams are eligible for consideration. In selecting the Sports Ambassador, Council will be asked to consider the following for each applicant: recent and historic achievements, the level of achievement, and the geographic area and scope of such achievements.
The City of Nelson established this honour in recognition of those who are not only active in Nelson but in other communities as well. 
The Sports Ambassador is expected to represent and promote the City of Nelson, increasing the visibility of Nelson’s active culture. The Sports Ambassador can use their official designation in their own promotional materials, programs and fundraising.
