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.
