People's Choice Categories

(winners determined by public voting)


People's Choice Sporting or Active Recreation Moment

Upload your favourite sporting or active recreation moment photo or video - those moments that make you proud; not necessarily focused on winning but on having fun, putting in effort, improvement, supporting teammates or the opposition, fair play and enjoyment of the game or activity. Sporting or active recreation moments can include participants, coaches, umpires or supporters – it’s the moment that’s important.


People's Choice Sportsperson

Nominate your favourite all-round sportsperson – for any sportsperson who is a current player and resides or plays in the Waikato region, not only for achievement in their chosen sport but also for their commitment to their community, their support of special projects or contribution of voluntary time, humbleness etc. The sportsperson can be a local sportsperson or elite sportsperson but is not limited to age or level. You can nominate any sportsperson in your local community who you feel displays all round qualities, not just in their chosen sport.  Anyone over 18 can nominate a sportsperson, and public voting will open in November once all nominations have been received. 


Nominations open on Friday 28 August 2020 and close on Friday 30 October 2020. Public voting opens for both People's Choice Sportsperson and People's Choice Sporting or Active Recreation Moment from 2-30 November 2020. Voting will be hidden from public view until after voting period closes and the nomination with the highest vote count will be announced as the winner at a special online event on 28 January 2021.
