#BeActive Awards

BeActive Awards

The #BeActive Awards competition is a central element of the annual European Week of Sport and has been created to support projects and individuals dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical activity across Europe.

There are three award categories: #BeActive Education Award, #BeActive Workplace Award & #BeActive Local Hero Award

In 2016, Ireland had three finalists and an overall winner of a European #BeActive Award, St Clare’s National School, Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan. See the video below to find out more about their story.

Selection process: Sport Ireland as the National Coordinating Body for the European Week of Sport in Ireland can submit a maximum of three entries across all three award categories. The European Commission will then make a pre-selection of finalists to be put forward to a high profile jury. This jury will select three finalists for all three award categories. By mid-August, the European Commission will contact the National Coordinators and EWoS Partners regarding the finalists. A representative of each finalist will be invited to attend the Awards Gala on 12 October 2017 in Marseille (France). All the finalists may be accompanied by one other person whose travel and accommodation will also be paid for.


The ultimate winner in each category will receive €5,000, a trophy and a professional video clip of the winning initative to showcase their success.
