Oberhofen, 24 May 2017 – For the 2017 edition of World Snow Day, FIS introduced the World Snow Day Awards. The Awards are designed to recognize the best World Snow Day events and actions under varying circumstances. The Awards contained four categories to enable all types of Organisers and events to participate. The four categories and their winners are as follows:

Best World Snow Day: This category is designed to recognize events which have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
Winner: World Snow Day Zakopane (POL) by The City of Zakopane
Prize: 10000 CHF

Winner: World Snow Day Vallesen (DEN) by the Danish Ski Association
Prize: 2000 CHF

Most Creative: Creativity has been one of the key successes of World Snow Day events. The following category recognizes the most creative and innovative World Snow Day actions.
Winner: World Snow Day Zagreb (CRO) by Ski and Snowboard Klub Maksimir
Prize: Camera Crew to film their next World Snow Day

Line Honors: For the first event to register for World Snow Day 2017
Winner: World Snow Day Oberstdorf (GER) by Skisport- und Veranstaltungs GmbH
Prize: 1000 CHF

Judging of the Awards was carried out by the World Snow Day team. FIS Bring Children to the Snow Coordinator Andrew Cholinski commented „We had 87 nominations submitted and the level was very high. The excellent information from the Organisers made judging difficult and by the end the winners were seperated by only a few points“

FIS has been very pleased with the Awards and “whilst the Awards are an excellent aspect of program the real reward is the children that are brought to the locations of the events” said FIS President Gian Franco Kasper. The World Snow Day Awards are a biannual event and the next edition will take place for World Snow Day 2019.
