The Women’s Sport Trust #BeAGameChanger Awards take place this May, giving you the opportunity to vote for your favourite inspiring women in sport.
The awards showcase women’s sport and all it has to offer – highlighting inspiring figures and role models, success stories and rewarding outstanding contributions to women’s sport.
Raising the profile of women’s sport
The Women’s Sport Trust is a charity that aims to raise the profile of women’s sport, something to which KUDOS is very keen to lend its support. Women’s sport is still not on an equal footing with men’s sport and perceptions around it still need to change. The WST is a leading UK charity focused on using the power of sport to accelerate gender equality and stimulate social change, promoting female role models in sport and seeking to increase media coverage as well as generating funding opportunities.
The award categories include sporting role model, sponsorship of the year and inspiring initiative.
Tammy Parlour, Co-Founder, Women’s Sport Trust, said:
We strongly encourage people to vote for those individuals and organisations they believe should be recognised for the work they are doing and the example they are setting. Great stories about these trailblazers are contagious and stimulate others to step up and play their part in promoting women’s sport.
Recognising schemes and initiatives vital to the growth of women’s sport
As well as recognising elite women’s sport stars, it recognises inspiring initiatives both on a local and national level. It is these projects, these schemes and initiatives, that are so vital to grassroots sport and the development and progression of sport as a powerful force for good.
The Women’s Sport Trust #BeAGameChanger Awards will take place in London on May 11th 2017 before an audience including elite athletes, journalists, businesspeople, politicians, sports leaders, grassroots influencers and young people involved in sport.
Previous winners of prestigious #BeAGameChanger’s Awards have included the likes of Nicola Adams MBE, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson and Clare Balding, along with organisations such as BBC Sport, parkrun UK and British Rowing, and individuals and groups making an impact in their respective communities.
Some of the nominees this year include the GB Women’s Hockey Team in the ‘Sporting Role Model – Team’ category, Alex Danson MBE for Sporting Role Model – Individual, and the fantastic Team Up initiative in the Inspiring National Initiative category. You can find the full list of nominees here.
The awards ceremony will be held in London on 11th May. Voting is open now until April 30th and you can vote here. The more voters the merrier – so please cast your vote now and help give the due recognition to the individuals and organisations doing women’s sport proud.
