Media team up with Kootenay Game Changer Awards
Local media are teaming up to honour the driving forces behind the East Kootenay moving forward.
When a community moves forward, there are individuals and community groups driving the change. They’re the people who have the vision, the drive, and the determination to make a difference. They’re the people who make sacrifices in their own lives, so that we can be a great community. These people are called Game Changers.
Anyone can be a game changer – in all sectors of community. This fall there will be an opportunity to acknowledge these people, their challenges, and their successes in our community.
B104 Total Country and The Kootenay’s Best Rock The Drive are proud to present The Kootenay Game Changer Awards. This fall, the local radio stations are teaming up with e-KNOW, Black Press and SNAPd East Kootenay to honour the leaders of change in our community.
“Community is made up of a multitude of sectors, including health and wellness, education, economics and finance, protective services, government, and recreation and much more,” said Danielle Cardozo, Marketing and Promotion Coordinator for B104 and The Drive.
“Our stations, and the local media who have agreed to participate in the Kootenay Game Changer Awards, have witnessed a great deal of work that has been done in our community by ambitious game changers in our local communities. We want the opportunity to acknowledge these individuals and thank them publicly for moving our communities forward. We recognize how hard they work.”
Fifteen categories for nomination, along with business sponsors, will be announced next month. Individuals and community groups will be assessed over the summer based on laid out criteria, including how they’ve used creativity and innovation to move their community sector forward.
Nominees will be screened over the summer. Four finalists from each category will be treated to a first class thank you at the St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino this fall, as they are honoured at a Nominees Gala – proudly sponsored by Columbia Power Corporation.
