19 February 2009

Beyond Sport – the global initiative that support the world’s most inspirational sports projects, people and organisations that drive positive change through sport has announced that its inaugural awards are now open for entries.

And athletics clubs and organisations have a strong chance of success in the wide range of awards on offer. With categories covering best new sporting projects, projects for health and social inclusion there are plenty of athletics club activities which could be submitted to Beyond Sport.

There are also awards recognising projects by federations, governing bodies, teams and corporate awards for Corporate Social Responsibility.

Entries must be made by 1 March 2009 and entrants can use imagery and video clipos to support their application.

Shortlisted entries will go before the Beyond Sport Judging Panel of Ambassadors, chaired by Tony Blair, who will choose the winner of each category.

The winners in eight categories will receive funding and long-term support to help them to become fully sustainable. All winners will be announced at the inaugural Beyond Sport Summit to be held in London on 7-9 July 2009.

Groups and individuals from across the globe can enter their social change projects in the Beyond Sport Awards via www.beyondsport.org, the initiative’s community-driven website where social entrepreneurs in sport can also share their ideas and insights with each other. 

If you are involved with or know of a project that you think deserves to be considered for the Awards, please visit www.beyondsport.org or call Beyond Sport on 0044 20 3355 8133.
