Finalists Announced for Women’s Sport Trust #BeAGameChanger awards

April 8, 2015
BAGC-SS

The Women’s Sport Trust has today announced the finalists for the inaugural #BeAGameChanger awards, with the overall winners to be chosen by the public. Following nominations and shortlisting by an expert panel, the finalists in each category give a superb reflection of the athletes, organisations and individuals making a positive contribution to women’s sport.

The winners will be announced live at the Women’s Sport Trust #BeAGameChanger awards, supported by Microsoft, which will take place on May 14 2015 on London’s South Bank in front of an audience including elite athletes, media, businesspeople, politicians, sports leaders and grassroots influencers.

The Awards will prove that women’s sport is viable, visible and unstoppable.  They will make a compelling case for future investment, encourage increased media coverage and bring together the decision makers who can help to make this happen.

It’s vital that the public helps to shape progress by deciding which role models, inspiring projects and sponsorship initiatives they think are making the most difference to women’s sport. People can cast their vote by visiting www.womensporttrust.com. The website includes a brief profile of each of the finalists. Voting opens on Tuesday April 7 and closes on April 19th.
