To celebrate the creation of the hall which was announced in October of 2015, six awards will be presented at next year’s induction ceremony scheduled for June. In keeping with the Maritime focus the awards will be shared equally with two given to worthy individuals or teams from each of the three Maritime provinces. Applications for the awards can be found on the hall’s website, www.maritmesporthalloffame.com, and submitted for consideration between Nov. 1 and Mar. 1. The six chosen will be announced along with the 2016 inductees on Apr. 15
