Celebrating our sporting champions since 1987
NOMINATE NOW FOR THE
NORTHERN ADVOCATE PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD "SIDELINE CHAPION" - 20.02.2020
The Northern Advocate People’s Choice Award is all about recognising Northland’s favourite ‘Sideline Champion’. We are asking the Northland community to nominate the person that best demonstrates that values of a ‘Good Sport.’
Your nominee will be a leader in youth sport, they will demonstrate integrity and mana on the side-line, they keep the child’s experience fun and development focused, and they encourage participation in a variety of sports. That’s because young people who receive quality experiences in sport become sport lovers for life and we want to acknowledge the Northlanders that understand this concept and deserves the recognition.
The nominees will go to a judging panel and then be narrowed down to four finalists. The finalists will be promoted in conjunction with the Northern Advocate and voted on by the public with the winner announced at the Conbrio Northland Sports Awards on Friday 3 April 2020.

WRAPPING UP LAST YEAR:
SPORT NORTHLAND CHIEF EXECUTIVE
“Another wonderful celebration of Northland sport took place with the 2018 Conbrio Northland Sports Awards, at the ASB Stadium Whangarei. Close to 550 people witnessed the continuation and elevation of the champions (since 1987) through the various awards presented on the evening.
The top award (The Conbrio Supreme Award) was taken out once again by Ella Gunson (hockey) from Whangarei, who also had the honour of again being named Female Sportsperson of the Year. The honour of Male Sportsperson of the Year was claimed by Jack Goodhue (rugby).from Kaikohe.
o Another highlight of the evening was The Northern Advocate People’s Choice Award where over 800 votes were cast for the five finalists selected in the community sport Good Sort. Waipu local, Sharon Carroll came out on top for her contribution to various sport and recreation groups over the year.
All in all, another great celebration of Northland sport – we certainly look forward to more fantastic performances from our home grown sportspeople!"
