SPROUT is proud to announce the categories for the first ever Indian Community and Sports Awards (ICSA). The awards will recognise the Indian sports people at the grassroots level in pursuit of excellence and to honour the outstanding contributions by Indians in the community.
SPROUT will host the inaugural Indian Sports & Community Awards ceremony at the brand new 4 star near Auckland International Airport.
The main objective of this annual award is to promote community development and sports in the New Zealand Indian community. ICSA will identify, acknowledge and appreciate not only individual talents but also honour the community or organisation that has supported the society.
SPROUT being a pioneering, grassroots and a non-profit organisation in the Indian community is the deserving group to host such awards that promote community development and sports. This ICSA award is an extension of what they do already. Also the recent award to SPROUT by the Auckland City Council’s Infratil awards has given even more leverage to host the ICSA initiative.
The qualifying period for the nominations is from 01 April 2011 to 31 March 2012.
The award categories are:
Sportsman of the year;
Sportswoman of the year;
