Awards & Grants


In Her Footsteps…Celebrating BC Women in Sport is an annual recognition program organized by ProMOTION Plus – the BC organization that promotes access and opportunity for girls and women in sport and physical activity.

The event honors athletes, coaches, officials, judges, pioneers or advocates. These women have made significant contributions to sport and fitness through their own performance, or by enabling others to excel by encouraging participation and fostering developmental growth in sport.

Do You Know a Woman We Should Know?

A woman who has made a significant difference for girls and women in British Columbia through sport?  A woman who has worked to create access and opportunities for participation in sport and recreation activities in British Columbia?  A woman who inspires through her own athletic achievement, passion and dedication?

The purpose of In Her Footsteps… is to name and honour women who have made a significant contribution to sport in BC.  Nominees can be athletes, coaches, officials, builders, pioneers, teams, officials, and members of the media—any woman whose impact is felt across the BC sport sector.

The nomination deadline is October 1, 2017. To view a copy of the nomination criteria please click here.
