Nomination Review Team

What does the Nominations Review Team do?

The Nominations Review Team is an esteemed group of Canadian sports business leaders who review all of the 5 to Watch award nominees in the context of the award eligibility and criteria. The team is sensitive to the diversity of all candidates and ranks all nominees via the voting process.

The aggregate of their rankings determines which 10 nominees move forward into the final round of judging.
