In addition 3 RISING STAR AWARDS will be chosen from nominations to the Junior Personality category.                                                                   

The nomination window closes on Friday 20 October 2023 

Clubs, governing bodies, sports fans, parents, coaches and teachers are invited to nominate their Cumbrian sporting heroes.

It could be a teacher who coaches after school and works tirelessly to train a team for the next sports championships. Or it could be a coach at your local sports club who has spent hours doing voluntary coaching, and you feel it is time they got the recognition they deserve. Or someone you admire who consistently goes the extra mile to help others in your community keep active.

Winners will be announced across the week of 27 November. A selection will be announced and interviewed each day throughout the week live on BBC Radio Cumbria during Mike Zeller at Breakfast.  All winners will be announced on the Active Cumbria social media pages.
