    VOTE & APPLY NOW: Basketball Manitoba Awards Voting & Scholarships Announced; Deadline to Vote March 19

    DEADLINE TO VOTE: MARCH 19 AT 4:00 PM: Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announce the details on the Basketball Manitoba Awards All-Manitoba Voting for the 2018-19 season.  We are proud to present the annual All-Manitoba Awards, recognizing Manitoba's finest players and coaches at the high school level.  As a lead-up to the presentation of the Basketball Manitoba Awards on Saturday, April 13 at the Victoria Inn Hotel and St. Paul's High School, we are inviting you to play a part in who is recognized for these top honours after calling for nominations in February.

    The awards include the All-Manitoba Teams, Players of the Year, Coaches of the Year, Special Recognition & Service Awards, Carl Ridd Award, Jim Bulloch Award, Mike Spack Lifetime Achievement Award, Ron Meyers Leadership Award and the Donovan Gayle Balling for the Cure Scholarships.

    A new award that has been added to the event is the Lena Wenke Courage Award.  Lena is a member of the University of Winnipeg Wesmen women's basketball team and was honoured with the award founded in her name in 2018. She was recognized as the inaugural recipient of the now named Lena Wenke Courage Award that acknowledged Lena's return to the basketball court after being the victim of a vicious assault in her Winnipeg home in 2017.

    The award will be continued into the future to recognize others in the basketball community (players, coaches, referees, volunteers) who have faced and overcome obstacles or challenges in their life while staying involved in the sport of basketball. Examples of this can include those who have dealt with and returned from a serious injury or illness or those who have dealt with a serious loss in their life among others.  As part of this award, Basketball Manitoba will make a $500.00 donation to a charitable cause identified by the recipient in the name of the recipient.

    Over $7000 in grants and scholarships are available to basketball players and coaches in Manitoba!  We are inviting ALL basketball coaches in Manitoba to cast their votes before the deadline of Tuesday, March 19 at 4:00 pm.  To cast your vote and apply for one for the scholarships...
