Rising Star Award ~ applications now being accepted!

The High Performance Committee (HPC) are now accepting applications for the 2014 Rising Star Award. This annual award is given to two young, promising orienteers (typically one male and one female), and is valued at $1500 per athlete.

Award recipients are chosen based on financial need, past results, future potential, and positive contribution to the Canadian orienteering community. The award can be won an unlimited number of times, but never more than twice consecutively.

Last year’s recipients were Emily Kemp and Serghei Logvin. Eric Kemp and Louise Oram received the award in 2012.

The process has changed this year. If you are an HPP athlete, you can self-nominate yourself for the award (as in previous years). If you are a member of an Orienteering Canada affiliated orienteering club, you can nominate an HPP athlete who you think is deserving of the reward.

Nominations must be submitted between February 15, 2014 and March 2, 2014 (by 11:59pm PST) to If someone else nominates an HPP athlete, the athlete will be notified by March 5, 2014 and must submit a Rising Stars Award Application Form by March 15, 2014 in order to be considered for the award.

For further information about the award, including the application forms, please refer to this link on Orienteering Canada's High Performance Program page.
