The Cook Islands National Sports and Olympic Committee (CISNOC) is urging all national federations to recognise their athletes and administrators by nominating for this year’s national sports awards.

The national sports awards will be hosted by Vaka Puaikura at the Aroa Nui hall and will be held on Tuesday, May 25.

Former All Blacks flanker and reality television Dancing with the Stars contestant Josh Kronfeld has also been confirmed as this year’s guest speaker at the awards.

Forms have been sent out to all national federations to nominate their athletes into the running for awards in 14 categories.

Entries for the Sports Hall of Fame will also be accepted as new inductees to the hall of fame will be announced and honoured on the sports award evening.

The sport awards categories are – Sportsman of the Year, Sportswoman of the Year, Junior Sportsman of the Year, Junior Sportswoman of the Year, Sports Team of the Year, Sports Technical Official of the year, Sports Administrator of the Year, Coach of the year, Fair Play Award, Sports Achievement Award, IOC Sports Personality of the Year Award, Best Administrated Outer Island Sports Association, Outer Island Sports Achievement and the Mamia Tunui Savage memorial trophy for women in sport.

All national federations are asked to please make an effort in sending in your nominations so that your athletes, teams and coaches can be recognised for their sports achievement in 2009 – a year packed with a number of international sporting events in the Cook Islands.
