Open Athlete Nomination

The Open Athlete of the Year Award is presented annually to a Manitoban athlete for their significant athletic achievements in their chosen sport. 

Nominations are accepted from Provincial Sport Organizations only.  Individuals, Recreation Directors, and sports media are encouraged to contact their PSO directly with suggested nominations.  The PSO must endorse the nomination.
