The Grand Forks Gazette is adding a new feature that will help honour some of the many great athletes in the area.

Starting next week, the Gazette will feature an athlete of the week, every single week.

Who is eligible? Anyone, male or female. All ages. It’s open to anyone in the community including Grand Forks, rural Grand Forks and Christina Lake.

How do I nominate someone? Just send an email to editor@grandforksgazette.ca with a large-sized JPEG picture of the person and a small write-up with name, age, sport, team (if applicable), position, and a few words on why you nominated them.

Anyone can nominate anyone else whether it be parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbours, or even sons or daughters.

Please put “Athlete of the Week” in the subject and include your contact information.

Best of all—it’s free. So be sure to nominate that athlete in the family that’s always out training.
