The MANITOBA HOCKEY HALL OF FAME COMMUNITY AWARD is an annual prize that goes to a Manitoba community to assist in the development of programs, initiatives or facility upgrades that better the game of hockey.
For the 2017 award, The Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame once again received the support of SIGFUSSON NORTHERN LTD, who graciously donated an additional $5,000.00, making the Grand Prize Total of $10,000.00 that was awarded to the winning entry.
The main goal of the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame Community Award is to aid Manitoba communities in encouraging young people in their area to start or continue to play the wonderful game of hockey. Manitoba communities are encouraged to submit applications for the Award, identifying their need for funds and how they will be used to keep boys and girls involved in the game.
