ED SWEENEY MEMORIAL AWARDS AND MEMORIAL RESEARCH GRANTS
The Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the creation of a new program of awards and grants. The new initiative will be called the Ed Sweeney Memorial Awards and Grants Program. It is named in honour of Ed Sweeney, who passed away in 2013. Sweeney was inducted into our Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005, in recognition of his tireless efforts to discover and publicize the history of hockey in Manitoba and the worldwide hockey achievements of Manitobans.
ED SWEENEY MEMORIAL AWARDS
Beginning in 2015, and annually thereafter, a maximum of two Ed Sweeney Memorial Awards, each worth $500.00, will be presented to individuals or groups who recently have published or produced items that contribute significantly to knowledge of Manitoba’s hockey history. The items can be books, articles, films, television programs, radio programs, theatrical productions, internet productions, or public exhibitions. The winners will be chosen from items nominated on a form to be found here; (www.mbhockeyhalloffame.ca/Sweeney Awards).
The deadline for submissions of the nominations is December 31, 2015. Anything published or produced from 2011 through 2015 will be eligible.

The Sweeney Award winners for 2015 will be announced in May 2016.
