The purpose of the Sports Hero’s Award is to honor and recognize citizens in Eastern Maine who have made a difference through their volunteerism in community sports.

These are the individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty to help ensure the successful operation of the programs they are involved with and the opportunities created for those who participate in them.
