The Athletics Ontario Community Involvement Award will be a new addition coming in 2020. The goal of this award is to recognize AO clubs that are involved in giving back to their communities.  AO is aware that many of our clubs are involved in charity activities within their communities already, and we would like to recognize those efforts. No matter how big or small, all will be considered for the award, and the hope is that every club will participate.


  • Each club registered for the 2020 season can participate
  • Any member of that club can participate, no age restrictions

How to Enter:

  • Have your club complete some sort of community involvement activity
  • Examples include:
    • Volunteering at a local food drive
    • Cleaning up in a local park
    • Raising money for a local cause/charity
    • Helping at an animal shelter
    • Anything else that your club may come up with, we will take into consideration
  • Clubs must then create a 1-minute long video of their members in action. Photos can be included as well
  • Along with the video, please give a brief explanation as to who you helped, what your club did, when it happened, where it happened, why you chose this activity in your community, how your club helped and a contact from the community AO can talk to about your clubs involvement.


Send an email to our office email ([email protected]), include your name, the club name and location, the video file (or link to the video), and an explanation of the activity conducted. All submissions will be posted on the Athletics Ontario website, with the winning club being selected by a vote of the members.

Submission Deadline:
