Halifax (12 March 2018) — The Social Recreation Committee of the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU/NUPGE) is now accepting applications for its Amateur Sports and Fine Arts Awards.
Awards help defray costs
Each year, the committee may issue up to 15 Amateur Sports Awards (of which up to 3 may be Fine Arts Awards) of $300 each to members, or children of members, who are amateur athletes or artists. These awards help defray the costs of participation in or training for sports or art.
These awards will be considered at the first meeting of the committee following the deadline for applications. The deadline is March 31. The committee will bring a recommendation to the NSGEU board of directors for ratification. Once ratified, the awards will be presented in May. These awards may be received by an individual only once every 2 years.
