Volunteer Merit Award

CSSC is dependent on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, who deliver a variety of sport and leisure opportunities to our members.

Nomination form

Nominate your 2020 choices

We are now searching for our Merit Award winners for 2020. We're looking for nominations for volunteers that have gone above and beyond for CSSC whilst being involved in a single or multiple roles and/or activities.

The length of qualifying service remains at ten years, but exceptionally a Merit Award could be given after seven years to reflect the changing trends in volunteering.

Each year the Chairman of CSSC makes up to ten awards to individuals who have made an outstanding voluntary contribution to CSSC. In reaching this decision, he is advised by a small advisory group drawn from CSSC's membership. Recipients receive a silver badge engraved with their name, a certificate signed by the Chairman and a framed history of how and why the Merit Award was introduced in 1978.

Reward criteria

  • The individual must have given highly meritorious and sustained service to CSSC in a voluntary capacity
  • The individual must have shown integrity in representing his/her Area, Region, Sports Body or Departmental Association
  • The individual must have had a positive and distinctive impact on the activities of CSSC in one or a number of voluntary roles
