DEARBORN – The deadline for submitting nominations for the Dearborn Recreation & Parks Department’s Hall of Fame, Special Awards Hall of Fame and Sports Legends Hall of Fame is Dec. 1.
Nomination forms are available in the lobby of the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center and online at www.dearbornfordcenter.com.
The Hall of Fame, created in 1957, is intended primarily for athletes, while the Special Awards Hall of Fame is meant to honor sponsors, officials, managers, coaches and administrators.
Candidates for either organization will be evaluated by the Dearborn Recreation & Parks Commission solely upon their participation in, or affiliation with, sports programs sponsored or conducted by the Dearborn Recreation & Parks Department.
To be eligible, nominees must be retired from active participation in Recreation & Parks Department-affiliated sports programs for a minimum of three years.
The Sports Legends Hall of Fame is designed to honor athletes for their achievements in sports not conducted or sponsored by the Dearborn Recreation & Parks Department. This would include accomplishments at the high school, college, semi-pro or professional level.
For consideration, nomination forms must be submitted at the service desk of the Ford Center, 15801 Michigan Ave., by 5 p.m., Dec. 1.
New members of all three organizations will be inducted at the Annual Sports Awards Ceremony, which will be held March 12 in the Michael A. Guido Theater, beginning at 2 p.m.
