Awards & Recognition Program
Athlete of the Month Award
The Athlete of the Month Award is presented for outstanding performance in a month. Nominations may be made by provincial sport organizations, the media or the public. All nominations are subject to approval by the provincial sport organization. The specific nomination deadline date will be communicated in the reminder notice, which is sent to each PSGB monthly (normally within the first 5 working days).
The award is open to teams and individuals who perform solo or on a team. Recipients may not win more than once every calendar year. A "team" is defined as a number of persons associated together in an activity. This includes all-star teams and contingents competing in individual disciplines in which there is a recognized team award.
To be eligible, athletes must: participate in a sport which is a recognized active and affiliate member of Sask Sport Inc.; be amateur in status as defined by their provincial sport organizations; make their primary residence in Saskatchewan. Athletes who live temporarily in other locations for educational or training purposes are also eligible as are athletes who are originally from other provinces. The award winner is announced through a media release and all nominees receive a certificate of achievement.
