Who has been the most impressive sports person across the Lithgow region in 2017?
You can voice your opinion by nominating candidates for the 2017 LJ Hooker Reg Cowden Memorial Sports Star of the Year Awards.
“These awards are appropriate recognition for exceptional sporting achievements of members of the Lithgow community during 2017, and are a legacy for Reg Cowden and his lengthy dedication to sport in the Lithgow region,” Mayor Stephen Lesslie said.
The ‘International Sports Star of the Year’ is awarded to the best international achievement during 2017 from a local sporting person, and the ‘Junior and Senior Team Achievement of the Year’ awards are presented to local teams who have excelled in their chosen sport.
Lithgow Council is also seeking local sporting organisations to nominate suitable candidates for the ‘Bunny Abbott Volunteer of the Year’ and the ‘Laurie Muir Official of the Year’ awards, as volunteers and officials contribute greatly to the success of local sporting competitions.
