North Okanagan Athlete of the Year Awards to be handed out June 23

Awarding our best athletes

The North Okanagan's best athletes will be honoured next week.

The 28th annual North Okanagan Athlete of the Year Awards will be handed out at an outdoor ceremony in front of City Hall June 23, at 5 p.m.

A panel of media and sports community leaders and sponsor Tim Hortons owner Dan Currie selected the athlete of the year, team of the year and leadership in sports winners, who will be revealed at the ceremony.

As of June 15, 50 people are allowed to attend an outdoor gathering following safety protocols such as social distancing. This will allow winners to bring some friends and family to the event this year, organizers say.

Last year’s winners were:

  • Shanda Hill - North Okanagan Athlete of the Year
  • Vernon Christian School Royals senior boys’ volleyball team - North Okanagan Team of the Year
  • Carl Vardon for his many years of volunteering with Vernon Minor Baseball - Leadership in Sports
