Rising Stars

To honour outstanding achievements in youth sport, the Haliburton Highlands Sports Hall of Fame has introduced a special segment at the biannual HHSHOF induction ceremony. This initiative aims to spotlight remarkable young athletes and/or teams (ages 14 to 19) who have demonstrated excellence in their sporting pursuits or contributed significantly to fostering a positive and inclusive sport environment within the Haliburton Highlands.

The HHSHOF Management Committee, in consultation with youth coaches in the community, will select deserving individuals and/or teams to receive this award. The selections will be announced in March of the Calendar Year in which the HHSHOF induction takes place.

Awards and certificates of achievement will be presented to those deserving individuals or teams selected at the HHSHOF’s biannual awards celebration. It’s an opportunity to recognize and encourage our rising stars.

2024 is the first year for the Rising Star Awards.
