PUBLIC NOMINATIONS FOR THE FA WOMEN'S AND GIRLS' FOOTBALL AWARDS OF 2020 ARE NOW OPEN
The FA is now accepting nominations for four categories in the FA Women’s and Girls’ Football Awards, with full details and nomination links available below.
The nomination window closes at midday on Thursday 19 March and all nominations will be pre-assessed by a team of women’s football experts before a shortlist will go forward to a judging panel.
Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award is open to players, coaches, administrators, volunteers and anyone involved in the sport who has made a sizeable contribution to women’s football over a long period of time. Nominees considered will have demonstrated approximately 20 years of service or more to the game.
Unsung Hero Award
The Unsung Hero Award is open to anyone involved in the sport who has made a recognisable contribution to women’s football during 2019. The nominee does not necessarily need to demonstrate lengthy service to the game but should be able to demonstrate significant impact and contribution to the game within their community or further afield. This can be in an on pitch or off pitch role and provides recognition for someone who goes above and beyond what is expected.
Best Community Football Development Initiative Award
The Best Community Football Development Initiative Award will represent the values of our strategy for women's and girls' football. The award celebrates initiatives that encourage girls to believe that football is a sport for them as well as recognise the success of grassroots football development programmes that have inspired women and girls to play.
Education Establishment Award
The Education Establishment Award looks to recognise an institution that demonstrates that they have provided girls and or young women to either learn through football, participate in football, compete and or lead in football.
