East Hants – The East Hants Sport Heritage Society received an impressive range of nominations for its inaugural East Hants Sport Awards.
Fourty nine nominations across a variety of sports were submitted for the awards launched earlier this year. Up to three finalists from each of the 11 categories have now been selected to attend the East Hants Sport Awards event held later this spring.
The finalists include one World champion, three Canadian champions, 13 provincial team athletes or all-stars, and 14 provincial champions.
“We were blown away by the amount of talent that is represented in East Hants,“ says Kody Blois, President of the East Hants Heritage Society. “When you put it all together like that it’s an impressive array of talented up-and-comers.”
The awards are to recognize the sport excellence within the Municipality of East Hants by celebrating the best and brightest in local sport during the year of 2014. The 11 categories are divided into female and male individual athletes and teams across all ages, as well as coaches, and volunteers for their extraordinary efforts in their respective sport(s).

There were no nominations received this year for Top Official.
“We were pleasantly surprised by some of the great athletes that were brought forward and generous coaches and volunteers who give so much of their time to see their sport thrive,“ says Blois. “There were a few very competitive categories; we had some tough decisions to make.”
