HALIFAX, N.S. – Paul van Nostrand attended the 2018 Prestige Awards at the Convention Centre in Halifax this afternoon.
The Prestige Awards, hosted by the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance, are presented annually to recognize the outstanding volunteer efforts put forth during sporting events across Canada.
van Nostrand was one of three finalists for the Sport Event Volunteer of the Year Award and was nominated for his work at the recent World U-17 Hockey Challenge. van Nostrand was up against Robbie Larter out of Charlottetown, P.E.I, for her work for Rogers Hometown Hockey which made a stop in the city in late October of last year, and Sachin Kotecha from Waterloo, Ontario, for his work as the Events Director for Quidditch Canada. The winner was Robbie Larter.
“It was a great honour,” added van Nostrand. “It was a fantastic experience and a first-class event. Celebrating the sports tourism with others from across Canada has been great. I’m really honoured to be nominated and recognized along with all the fantastic people and events throughout the country.”
