Denver, CO – Colorado Martial Arts News is proud to announce the inaugural red-carpet Colorado Martial Arts Awards! These awards seek to recognize outstanding accomplishments by martial artists in the state. This includes things like competitions won, but also things like hardships overcome. There are many ‘martial arts halls of fame’ where anyone can be inducted simply by possessing a check for a few hundred dollars as well as ‘life experience.’ These awards are nothing like that.
Nominations are open to the general public. Anyone can submit a youtube clip to enter any one of the categories. The Nominating Committee will choose up to 5 finalists for each award, at which point the general public will be able to vote for the winners. Next summer we will host the red-carpet awards show in a high school auditorium, complete with special performances, speeches by the winners, and booths by sponsors. The idea behind this event is a time to bring schools in Colorado together as well as have fun and build team spirit.
Winners will receive an award (design pending) while finalists will all receive a certificate. More information (including applications for sponsorship) will come as the event gets closer.
The initial categories are as follows:
