We have exciting announcements coming soon including:

Official Artist of the Awards this year: every year we engage a local artist to create the awards as works of art the winners can take home and treasure. You’re going to want to win an award just for the fact that this special artist is creating them especially for each award winner!

Each year, the awards luncheon reflects on a different theme, and this year we choose to highlight diversity in culture, age, and to celebrate not only excellence in sport, but also recreation and physical activity. This is WomenActive-NS’s sole fundraiser and has been growing each year with this being the 4th annual.

The Trendsetter Awards celebrates initiatives, facilities, media, individuals and groups across the province who are making a difference for women and girls. They break down barriers, challenge the status quo, try new experiences, dare others to dream, blaze new trails and showcase the talent that exists across Nova Scotia in order to ensure fair and equitable access and opportunities for women and girls.

Tickets are available individually or by table. Select single ticket if you would like 1 or more tickets and select Table if you’d like a table of 10 seats. Traditionally, table purchasers have sometimes donated tickets back to the organizers to then invite students in the disciplines to join them and share the experience of celebrating excellence across Nova Scotia.
