“The Town of Port Hedland and BHP Community Sports Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the sporting achievements of the year, recognising the invaluable contributions sport makes in connecting our vibrant community.

“This year we’ve introduced a new category of Service to Sport, which recognises length of service to sports or the community; the number of sporting organisations engaged over time; demonstrated contribution to the sport or industry and demonstrated achievement or legacy as a result of involvement.

“I encourage everyone to think of someone, or a club or organisation, who has made a quality contribution to our sporting community over the past year.
