It’s time to nominate and select the 2022 Special Olympics Ontario Provincial Awards winners (for the period of July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022). We are once again looking for deserving athletes, coaches, and volunteers in various categories, so please nominate any deserving candidates.
We are excited to announce the addition of a new award – The Rising Star Coach of the Year. This award recognizes our newer volunteers who have made a significant difference in their community in a relatively short period of time.
To nominate athletes and volunteers please visit our Provincial Awards Site and submit your nomination on the online forms provided. Please note that the deadline date is Friday, June 17, 2022. Also, there is a helpful checklist on the main page of the awards site detailing some of the key information you will need when submitting a nomination.
If you require assistance with any of the required information, or would like some help putting together the nomination (including access to a particular nominees’ previous application to use in re-submission), please reach out to us and we’ll be happy to help.
Please share this information within your community. We aim to have a wide variety of nominees from all over the province. This is a great way to recognize people in your community who make a significant difference. Special Olympics Ontario is home to an incredible group of athletes, coaches, and volunteers, and we aim to spotlight some of the very deserving individuals and teams that represent SOO.
Please note that we will not be accepting nominations from family members.
For further information / concerns, please contact the SOO Awards Team at SOOAwards@specialolympicsontario.ca.
