TIDESWELL Olympian Ellie Koyander is urging people to nominate someone for the Derbyshire Dales District Council Sports Awards in 2011.

Ellie, a mogul skier, was Sports Woman of the Year in 2010 at both district and county level and has been a previous winner of the Junior Sports Person of the Year.

Eleven Derbyshire Dales sports awards are available, including nominations for performance, volunteering in sport and clubs and team awards.

There is also the opportunity to celebrate an ‘unsung hero’ - someone, often overlooked, who has made a significant voluntary contribution to sport.

Nominations forms are available at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/sportsawards or by contacting the District Council’s Sports Development Team on 01629 761225. The deadline for nominations is August 19.
