Entries open for MSA Club & Volunteer of the Year
Entries are open for the 2016 JLT MSA Club and Volunteer of the Year Awards, which will be presented during the Night of Champions ceremony at the Royal Automobile Club in London on 28 January.
Regional Associations, Clubs and Groups are asked to submit nominations in various JLT MSA Volunteer of the Year awards categories, including: Steward/Clerk of the Course; Technical Official e.g. Scrutineer or Timekeeper; Marshal; and Medical/Rescue/Recovery/Safety. There is also a category for ‘Other’, for example under-25s going above and beyond, non-licensed club officials, committee members or unsung heroes.
Each category winner will receive a prize cheque and a commemorative MSA trophy. The best overall entry will be declared the MSA Volunteer of the Year and will receive the JLT silver pewter salver at the MSA’s annual prize-giving ceremony.
Clubs can nominate themselves for the JLT MSA Club of the Year award. The top three will receive cash prizes and commemorative trophies, with the winning club being invited to collect its award in London.
Jess Fack, MSA Development Manager, said: “The volunteering award recognises excellence across the volunteer workforce and is open to volunteers of all stripes, whether marshals or officials. Meanwhile the club award aims to highlight the fantastic range of motorsport activity that clubs deliver over the year, providing opportunities for members to compete, volunteer and socialise; as well as attracting new people into the sport.”
Nomination forms are available at msauk.org/awards and the deadline for submissions is 31 October. Club and volunteers seeking more information can contact their local Regional Development Officer via www.gomotorsport.net/contact.
