Adidas Outdoor has opened the nominations for their seventh annual Outdoor Inspiration Awards, a celebration of individuals, retailers and manufacturers in the outdoors industry.
Adidas has partnered with the Boy Scouts of America and a panel of industry leaders to select annual winners. Nominations will be accepted from now until Nov. 16.
Categories include outstanding individuals, retailers, manufacturers, nonprofits and a category for outstanding youth.
“The Outdoor Inspiration Awards has been an integral part of our history and speaks to the heart and soul of Adidas Outdoor,” said Greg Thomsen, managing director of Adidas Outdoor USA in the release. “Encouraging outdoor participation is a responsibility that rests with every facet of our community. “
“It seems appropriate to celebrate the accomplishments of the outdoor industry at the national industry event where the entire outdoor tribe gathers. Thanks to Adidas Outdoor and all of the sponsors, the Outdoor Inspiration Awards is a unique and special event where we shine the light on those who inspire and encourage others to enjoy outdoor adventures,” said Marisa Nicholson, Outdoor Retailer vice president and show director.
The Outdoor Inspiration Awards will take place on Jan. 11, 2017 during the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market event.
