One club will benefit from volunteer award cheque
SPORTS AWARDS: The sixth annual winner of the Condamine Sports Club Volunteer of the Year award will be announced at the March 18 Daily News/Warwick Credit Union Sports Star dinner at the Hawker Rd Function Centre.
The award was started by the Condamine Sports Club in 2014 to recognise outstanding volunteer work across all sports.
The first 2018 nomination was received yesterday and it is hoped to have four nominees for an award which has an added bonus - the club of the winner will receive a $500 cheque from the Condamine Sports Club.
The volunteer award covers the same area as the sports awards: Warwick, Clifton, Allora, Killarney, Texas and Inglewood.
The award is judged half on volunteer work in the past year in all sports and volunteer work down the years.
The sports star judges will determine the winner on information supplied by each nominator.
While it is not required for nominations to be from a club, it has to be done in consultation with club office bearers.
A presentation will be made to each nominee/finalist on the night as well as the overall winner.
A perpetual trophy has been presented to the winner down the years and is updated annually with the most recent winner.
When the volunteer award started, Warwick Credit Union CEO Lewis von Steiglitz said it was a good fit to be on the same night as the junior awards as it was volunteers who had helped the juniors win their monthly awards.
