The #BeActive awards were created to support projects and individuals that are dedicated to promoting sport and physical activity across Europe. The awards have three categories:
#BeActive Education Award
This award aims to demonstrate how education can encourage kids to #BeActive outside the typical sport/physical activity taking place in their normal school day. This may include additional activities, scheduling days outside of class that focus on sport, after-school activities and other creative solutions that build an active education environment.
#BeActive Workplace Award
This award celebrates exemplary activities in the workplace that encourage employees to #BeActive. This may include setting up a staff taskforce responsible for promoting physical activity, provision of showers for cycling/running commuters, standing meetings, lunchtime walks and other creative solutions to form an active working environment.
#BeActive Local Hero Award
This award honours individual achievement in motivating others to #BeActive. The award recognises individuals who have worked consistently to promote participation in sport and/or physical activity in their local community.
How to Apply
Applications for each of these categories should be submitted to the European Commission by Member States’ National Coordinating Bodies, or Partners of the European Week of Sport. Focusing on educational establishments and workplaces – as well as individuals in local communities – the awards competition provides an excellent platform to showcase extraordinary projects and individuals that have supported the Week.
