Each year we honour our coaches, officials and significant volunteers with Football Alberta awards. In recognition of 2020 as a unique year, for this year we will be recognizing those who made a significant effort to keep football going in these trying times. Please take the time to nominate someone you feel deserves special recognition. Email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to January 15, 2021. Nominations are now closed, thanks to all who sent in nominations.
Award winners will be chosen at Football Alberta’s AGM end of January and be announced through our social media throughout the next few months.
Football Alberta Life Membership Award/Hall Of Fame Award
The nominees are individuals in the football community who have made outstanding contributions to the Association and amateur football in Alberta at any level, over an extended period of time and maybe are either moving from the province or planning to reduce their active participation and involvement in football. This honour is presented to truly worthy nominees who have reached and maintained a significant level of excellence that categorizes the recipient among the selected few who deserve such prestigious recognition. Since this award is to honour only those who have made a major impact on Football Alberta and amateur football in Alberta, it is not necessarily presented each year and is subject to the following voting criterion.
To be eligible to receive this award, nominees must receive 75% of all ballots cast by Board members in the year of nomination. Voting delegates may vote for as many or as few deserving candidates as they wish. Those nominees not receiving the 75% support will remain on the active ballot for a period of 5 years. If nominees have not received the 75% supporting threshold during the 5 year time period following their original nomination, their names are removed from future ballots.
