The skater’s choice award is the brain child of a Steven Andersen – a Milton Speed Skating Club alumnus. The award is intended to be an award by the skaters for the skaters.
The previous year’s winner selects a short list of skaters who he/she feels has a leadership presence. The nominee must also have motivation to attempt an achievable goal and finally the nominated skater should be a role model.
The rest of the skaters then cast a ballot for one of the short listed skaters. The winner is determined by the outcome of the vote
