Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation, the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC), as part of its ongoing effort to recognise and honour outstanding Berbicians will be hosting the first-ever ANSA McAL Award of Excellence programme. The award, which is the brain child of the club’s secretary/CEO, Hilbert Foster, was approved by ANSA McAL Managing Director, Ms Beverly Harper, who also serves as the club’s patron.
Foster disclosed that the ANSA McAL Award of Excellence will honour three outstanding Berbicians, who over the years have excelled in a leadership capacity under the subheadings of sports, education and community development.
The general public has from May 4 to June 1 to submit nominations of persons whom they feel deserve to be honoured. The winners of the three sub-headings will be selected by a panel of judges headed by veteran television journalist, Gregory Rambarran. The winners will be selected based on years of service, impact on society and role model status. Nominees should be over 40 years old.
Persons making nominations must be living in Berbice and are allowed only one nomination under every sub-heading. They must also submit their name, address and contact telephone numbers.
The announcement of the winners and presentation of prizes will take place on June 23.
Members of the RHTY&SC are not allowed to nominate any person or to be nominated. Each winner would receive a plaque, a medal of excellence and a collection of gifts.
Nominations can be sent to the RHTY&SC office, DTV-8 at Main and St Ann Street, New Amsterdam, or the Berbice Cricket Board at Charlotte Street, New Amsterdam.
Nominations via email can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org.
