The P.E.I. Sports Hall of Fame is calling for nominations for induction in 2020.
The Hall – which recognizes the very best Island athletes, builders, and teams – currently has more than 200 members, and will be swelling its ranks by at least four inductees when the celebrations are held this summer.
To be eligible for membership in the athlete category, the nominee must have born in P.E.I., or lived in the province for at least four years at the peak of their competitive athletic career. They must also have been retired from their sport for a minimum of five years or be at least five years removed from the height of their athletic achievements.
Builders must have been born on the Island or given at least at least 10 years of service to Island sport during their time living in the province. Coaches, administrators and officials all fall within the builder category.
Eligible teams also need to be at least five years past the time of their highest achievements.
The deadline for nominations to be received is April 17. The induction ceremonies are once again supported by the P.E.I. Mutual Insurance Company.
More information is available at the Hall’s website at www.peisportshalloffame.ca or by contacting executive director Nick Murray at 902-393-5474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations should be sent to P.E.I. Sports Hall of Fame, 40 Enman Crescent, Charlottetown, PE C1E 1E6.
