BDS Logan City Sports Awards
Nominations for Logan's sporting night of nights, the 2013 BDS Logan City Sports Awards, are now open and will close Friday 5th December.
The annual awards, which pay tribute to Logan City's most elite athletes and inspirational sports people, will be announced on Saturday 14 March 2014 at the Logan Entertainment Centre.
With more than 100 sporting clubs across the city, Logan has long held an enviable reputation for producing some of the country's finest sporting stars like internationally renowned sporting heroes Israel Folau, Cameron Smith, Robbie McEwen, Jodie Henry and Michael Voss.
Past winners' accomplishments have seen them reach the highest pinnacle in their chosen sports and have inspired other young athletes to follow in their footsteps and achieve their dreams.
Testament to Logan's sporting status, last year's event was a star studded sell-out with special guest appearances by former NRL Legend and Channel 9 presenter Wally 'The King' Lewis, Shane Webcke and Laurie Lawrence.
Logan Paralympian Wheelchair Basketballer, Bill Latham, earned the enviable title of 2012 Sportsperson of the Year, while local boxer, Jesse Ross and synchronised swimmer, Samantha Reid were awarded the titles of Sportsman and Sportwoman of the year in recognition of their efforts at the 2012 London Olympic Games.
This year is set to be no different; with each of the 12 category winners to receive vouchers to the value of $500 and the BDS Sportsperson of the Year to receive a voucher to the value of $1000. All nominees will be awarded with a free ticket to the gala event, valued at $80.
If you or someone you know is a Logan City sportsperson who deserves to be honoured, make sure you submit a nomination form for the 2013 BDS Logan City Sports Awards by Friday 5 December.
